BREATHE will enable high quality research and cutting-edge innovation to improve the lives of people living with respiratory conditions, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Everyone in the UK will have a respiratory illness at some point in their life. We have the best datasets in the world – which should be used to improve respiratory health – but these are currently very difficult to find, access and use.
People in the UK deserve the best respiratory health. We want to make respiratory health better by changing the way the NHS, pharmaceutical companies, charities and researchers use data.
BREATHE is a hub where trained, approved experts can access respiratory data to benefit patients and the public. The HUB will make it easier for experts to use data in safe and secure ways.
SAIL Databank, a partner in BREATHE, will be utilised to manage BREATHE data and will provide UK’s wider research community remote access to the data it holds safely and securely for respiratory research to help improve the lives of people living with respiratory conditions in the UK.
