Research and data

Research and data header

Our research helps us to make sure that our policies and decisions are based on evidence. We undertake some research projects ourselves, but commission most from independent researchers. In addition to research we collect a wealth of data about the medical profession and the organisations where doctors practise and train, and we are committed to sharing that information with others to improve patient care and aid workforce planning.
