NHS Digital is replacing the General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) with the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection, GPDPR, and have consulted British Medical Association (BMA), Royal College of GPs (RCGP) and the National Data Guardian (NDG) to ensure safeguards are in place for patients and practices. Data will only be made available to organisations with a clear legal basis to do so for health and care purposes, and are approved following independent scrutiny by our Independent Group Advising on the Release of Data.
Patient data collected from general practice is already used to support research and analysis to help run and improve health and care services. In addition to replacing GPES, the General Practice Data for Planning and Research service (GPDPR) will help to support the planning and commissioning of services, the development of policy, public health monitoring and interventions (including coronavirus) and enable many different areas of research.
Data from the GP medical records will be shared from 1 July 2021. Data may be shared about:
- any living patient registered at a GP practice in England when the collection started - this includes children and adults
- any patient who died after 1 July 2021, and was previously registered at a GP practice in England when the data collection started
Names and addresses are not collected. Any data that could directly identify patients (such as NHS Number, date of birth, full postcode) is replaced with unique codes produced by de-identification software before the data is shared, a process called pseudonymisation.
Structured and coded data from patient medical records including data on:
- diagnoses, symptoms, observations, test results, medications, allergies, immunisations, referrals, recalls and appointments, including information about physical, mental and sexual health
- sex, ethnicity and sexual orientation
