Data Access Requests

The PQIP team are keen for PQIP data to be used for patient benefit. A such, in addition to formal outputs by the central Project Team such as quarterly reports, dashboards etc. and our planned research outputs, we actively encourage and support external proposals for secondary research. The intended purpose of the data is to provide clinicians at participating sites with a data resource they can use to investigate, analyse and improve the quality of care of their perioperative patients.

You can apply for access to anonymised patient-level and/or hospital-level aggregated data from multiple hospitals. To do so, please read the application guidance below before completing the patient and/or hospital-level data access request forms and returning the completed form/s to

The NIAA/HSRC Data Handling Policy cited in the application form can be viewed online.

Furthermore, if you would like to discuss the data access request in advance of submitting the application to assess whether the data held by PQIP will be of use to your research, please send an email to the same address listed above marked for the attention of Prof Ramani Moonesinghe.
