The Patient Information Advisory Group (PIAG), set up under the Health and Social Care Act 2001 (covering England and Wales), gave approval for us to process patient-identifiable data from hospital registers (confidentially on behalf of local collaborators) in order to generate invitations to potentially eligible study participants.

(Note: PIAG no longer exists and it’s duties are now undertaken by the Data Access Advisory Group (DAAG) at NHS digital).
