About Us

SAIL Databank has 10 years’ experience as a leader in the field of data linkage and giving researchers secure remote access to anonymised extracts of datasets drawing upon billions of de-identified person-based population, health and social care data records.

SAIL is committed to working with researchers, the NHS and other health-related stakeholders to conduct projects that lead to enhanced patient care, public benefit and improvements in health and well-being. SAIL makes person-based population data available for genuine research purposes only where there is a potential for benefit. Because SAIL only provides access to anonymised data, researchers carry out their work without knowing the identities of the individuals represented in the datasets.
