The Steering Committee encourages analysis proposals which utilise information held in the Database. Any bona fide researcher is entitled to submit a proposal. All proposals are reviewed by the Steering Committee for the relevance of the scientific question and the robustness of the proposed methodology. Analysis proposals that require linked data items from the UKCHIC study and/or Public Health England’s HARS dataset will additionally be reviewed by the UKCHIC steering committee and/or staff at Public Health England respectively. A decision on whether a proposal has been approved is normally made within one month if its submission.
For further information on submitting a proposal please see the How to submit a proposal page
