Data Access

The District Nursing datamart is accessed through the NHSScotland Corporate Data Warehouse and can be queried using a Business Objects universe. Access to the universe can be requested via the User Access System and requires authorisation from a relevant authoriser.

A number of District Nursing dashboards are also available via Tableau. Access to these dashboards can also be requested via the User Access System.

Staff without a login for the User Access System can register for one via the system link above.


Training documentation will be sent to users once access to the datamart or dashboards have been authorised.

Datamart training is via user guides and dashboard training is via a number of short training videos.


Any questions regarding data submission, access or training should be directed to:
