How will my information be used?
The information that will be shared with Flatiron Health UK may include:
- Information about you including your age, gender, ethnicity and the area in which you live
- Information about your disease including the type of cancer
- Information from biopsies, blood results and scans
- Details about the treatments you are given and whether they work
This data will be anonymised and made available as unidentifiable research-ready data collections – also known as datasets - for academic and commercial researchers. Access to this data is granted subject to independent oversight and approval for use in research projects to improve cancer care and treatment in the UK.
Researchers from Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust will also have access to these datasets for use in our own research projects.
