How do we link your data?

Answer: 

When you consented into the Airwave Study Research Tissue Bank you agreed to allow the researchers to follow your health outcomes for a number of years. In order to do this, we provide your identifiable data (name, address and date of birth) to NHS Digital.

NHS Digital use these data to trace you on NHS systems and link to death and cancer registration data. These events are then reported to the Airwave Study researchers at regular intervals.
