General NHS GMS clinical dataΒΆ

A number of tables in LabKey are common to all participants, both cancer and rare disease participants. These cover data about the participants themselves, the samples and results of bioinformatic analyses. All tables and their fields are described in our data dictionary.

Primary and secondary data tables

Primary clinical data were collected when participants were enrolled in the programme.

Secondary clinical data were obtained from third parties such as NHSE.
