General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) Service;NHS Digital has been collecting data from GPs through its trusted General Practice Extraction Service. This system is now being replaced with their new General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) service, a broader general-purpose collection which will enable faster access to pseudonymised patient data for planners and researchers. 

The data collection will begin on 1st September 2021.  

More information about the service can be found on NHS Digital's website.

We now include this additional privacy notice, alongside our main privacy notice, that explains what data is used and why.

Opting out

If you don’t want your identifiable patient data to be shared for purposes except for your own care, you can opt-out by registering a Type 1 Opt-out or a National Data Opt-out, or both. These opt-outs are different and they are explained in more detail on the NHS digital website. Your individual care will not be affected if you opt-out using either option.
