Application Process

SAIL Databank has been assisting researchers to access and link data for 10 years. Our years of experience allow us to reduce the time it traditionally takes to access such data to prevent valuable health research being delayed or abandoned.


"I applied recently for access to the SAIL data in a study I am conducting and was expecting it to be a longwinded process if I am honest, particularly at the moment (during COVID-19). In fact, the whole thing was incredibly straightforward and quick and just a few days after submitting the required documentation my authentication token was delivered to my home. The instructions for use were also clear and easy to follow."
