Staff accessing information within the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and iCARE Environment can request access to the Metadata Catalogue. To request access please email

Publicly Available Datasets

Our curated datasets are available via:


We are aiming to make information about the datasets (known as metadata) we hold for use in research available in the public domain as possible. We are working through an automated process at the current time to ensure we can meet the Trust’s rigorous security rules.

Get Access to Data

We have set up a single route for applications to access Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust’s (ICHT) de-identified patient data. This includes access to unstructured data (text and imaging) and access to ICHT data linked to other datasets including Whole Systems Integrated Care data. Please read all information on this page before applying to access data.

The iCARE team are happy to support applications for all types of studies requiring access to routine data, however some types of studies may require further approvals or review by other committees, for example:

  • Transfers of data outside of the Trust
  • Projects that involve contact with patients (e.g. clinical trials).
  • Projects that require access to identifiable data

We can provide details of these further approvals as part of the application process.
