How long will we retain the data?

Our original funding allowed us to collect follow-up information on cancers and deaths for the UKFSST until March 2017. We have now been awarded additional funding to continue to follow-up the UKFSST cohort for a further 10 years until March 2027, until all the participants have reached the age of 80 years. Imperial College London, the organisation responsible for this study, requires that we hold data from all clinical studies for 10 years after the study end date. We therefore currently plan to hold the data for this study until March 2037.
