Data and research

We collect data on the medical profession and the organisations where doctors practise and train. We also carry out and commission analysis and research. Here you can access all our resources to help improve medical training, patient care and workforce planning.

Our research
Our research informs our policy decisions; making sure our actions are based on evidence. We undertake some projects ourselves, but we also commission independent researchers.
