Setting up data linkage systems for children in Glasgow

Setting up data linkage systems for children in Glasgow

This project is a SCPHRP seed-funded research project. Seed-funding research was part of the SCPHRP remit during the period of 2008 ’€“ 2012.

Dr Phil Wilson

It is well established that early experiences have a significant long term impact on health and wellbeing of children, and so national and local policy in Scotland is at present focused on enhancing services that promote early childhood development.
Despite having relatively sophisticated routine data systems in Scotland, we do not routinely gather information on cognitive and emotional development, and it is not clear to what extent existing non-developmental child health data are effectively collated and utilised.  An innovative project is currently underway in Glasgow, gathering data on emotional and cognitive development when children are 13 and 30 months of age and entry to primary school.
This project aims to capitalise on the opportunity afforded by these innovations to explore how existing and novel population based data on early childhood development can be systematically used to support the enhancement and evaluation of services for pre-school children at local level.
