The UK is one of the largest documenting centres contributing to the European central (ESID) registry of primary immunodeficiencies.

Established on its own servers in 2009, it has grown to contain information on patients with over 200 different types of primary immunodeficiency and more than 3000 individuals. To read the latest news at the Registry reaches its 10 year anniversary on Recognising and Reacting to PID click here.

Patients and healthcare professionals share an interest in such a registry which is an essential instrument for high-quality research and ultimately contributes to the improvement of patient care. Another key objective of data collection is to raise public awareness and to strengthen PID's position towards key stakeholders like the media and the government.

The UK PID registry is run by a sub-committee of the UKPIN steering group.

The UKPID Registry is now established on servers based at the Royal Free Campus of University College London (UCL). The data is SSL encrypted and stored on secure servers. Ethical approval has been obtained from the National Research Ethics Service (04/MRE07/68)

Patient data is anonymised and the initial aim to capture core data on all PID patients in the UK has been largely achieved.  Subsequently, long-term documentation of patients is planned with documentation requested at least once a year for each patient.

Over the last year the European and now the UK registry databases have been reorganised to make data entry, retrieval and analysis simpler all to achieve the common goals outlined.  This work has also focussed the effort on improving data quality.

For more detailed information about the registry, please refer to the user guide in the downloads section.

To access the registry, a standard browser, user-name and password is sufficient. Users will only have access to data from their own documenting centre. However, where individuals or centres wish to undertake collaborative projects with other participating centres, the UKPID Registry committee will facilitate that request and assist in establishing agreements for data sharing between centres.
