James Doidge is an epidemiologist based at the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health. James has worked with linked administrative data in Australia and the UK and advised the UK Office for National Statistics and NHS Digital on data linkage matters. He has taught courses on data linkage at several institutions around the UK through his work with the Administrative Data Research Network. His current interests focus on developing new methods for data linkage and analysis of linked data, which he applies to a diverse range of research topics in population health.

Research Summary

My current programme of research involves:

  • Methodological research, developing new techniques for data linkage and analysis of linked administrative data
  • Applied research, analysing large administrative datasets including the UK Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), National Pupil Database (NPD), National Down Syndrome Cytogenetic Register (NDSCR), and Office of National Statistics Register of Births, Deaths and Marriages
  • Collaboration with Public Health England, where I hold an honorary appointment to assist with linkage of population health registers and datasets
  • Collaboration with researchers from Australia and the US on a South Australian population data linkage project measuring some of the long-term impacts of child abuse and neglect with data from the South Australian child protection, health and education systems combined with population registers

Teaching Summary

I currently teach a module on data linkage in the MSc Health Data Science course 'Principles of Health Data Science'. I also regularly teach short courses on data linkage, previously offered through the Administrative Data Research Centre for England. I have previously taught courses in epidemiology, health economics, and health data sources and management at the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia.
