The Gateway community forum is for anyone in the health data research community – whether you are a researcher, scientist, clinician, technologist, patient, or data controllers – to engage in wide-ranging discussions about relevant themes or topics.

By participating in our forum we expect you to do so with Health Data Research UK's values in mind: transparency, optimism, respect, courage and humility. It is to be used in the spirit of supporting and learning from other users. Any negative or damaging references to identifiable individuals may be edited or deleted by Health Data Research UK.

We use an open-source forum software called Discourse that is deployed and hosted by Health Data Research UK. No identifiable patient data will be shared or stored in the community forum. Any other data, relating to individual users from the community, and the content of discussions within Discourse are subject to the privacy policy of the Gateway.
