Dr Tim Wilkinson, Dr Christian Schnier and Professor Cathie Sudlow in Edinburgh, in collaboration with researchers at Swansea University, have used routinely-collected healthcare data (primary care, hospital admissions and death data) to create an electronic cohort (e-cohort) for dementia research. Utilising the Secure Anonymised Information Linkage database (SAIL see https://saildatabank.com/), this e-cohort contains data for 1.2 million people in Wales, of whom 130,000 developed dementia during follow-up. The e-cohort can be accessed through DPUK, with data provided if approval is given by SAIL.
