How to Access
Once approved, researchers will access data for their project through the secure Scottish National Safe Haven facility managed by the eDRIS team within Public Health Scotland, hosted by the EPCC at the University of Edinburgh. Researchers can access database querying and analytical tools within the environment such as RStudio. The secure platform puts virtual walls around data so that researchers can only access data for which they have been approved.
