GPDPR General Practice Data for Planning and Research Purposes

9 June 2021

You may have noted in the media plans by NHS Digital to extract data from GP patient records.  From 1 September 2021 GP practices will be required to supply patients' medical information to NHS Digital in a project known as GPDPR. The information will consist of your full (historical) GP record as well as new information added to it on an ongoing basis.  Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, GP practices have no choice but to allow NHS Digital to extract this information - it is a legal obligation.  It will be used for planning health services, commissioning, population health management and for research.  This is known as secondary use of your medical records.

Although GP practices cannot object to the data leaving the practice, individuals can instruct their practice to prohibit the transfer ie you have the right to opt out

To find out what this is all about, please have a look here:

General Practice Data for Planning

How my confidential data is used

If you wish to opt out, you must inform us by 1 September 2021. If you opt out after this date, some of your data may have already been extracted, but no further extractions will take place after you opt out.

To opt out, you must complete the required opt out form and return it to the surgery 

A copy of the Type 1 opt out form can be downloaded here or hard copies are available at Reception.
