PHE exists to protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing, and reduce health inequalities. It does this through advocacy, partnerships, world-class science, knowledge and intelligence, and the delivery of specialist public health services.
PHE is an executive agency of the Department of Health and Social Care, and a distinct organisation with operational autonomy. They provide government, local government, the NHS, Parliament, industry and the public with evidence-based professional, scientific expertise and support.
Public Health England’s Office for Data Release (ODR)
The ODR facilitates access to a wide range of individual and aggregate public health datasets and auxiliary services to support research and innovation where there is a legitimate and legal basis to do so and the data is to be used for health-care purposes.
This includes facilitating data linkages and access to a secure safe haven space within PHE.
