Progress in identifying environmental causes of ill health is hampered by the challenges of linking environmental and epidemiological datasets. The MEDMI team are attempting to simplify this process by creating a platform on which a set of key datasets for the UK have been pre-linked and by providing a web-based access system including standard analysis tools. Our talk will describe early progress in the project, including both successes and disappointments.
