General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR)

Dear Patient,

You may have heard about the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection which will be effect from 1st September 2021.

The data held in the GP medical records of patients is used every day to support health and care planning and research in England, helping to find better treatments and improve patient outcomes for everyone. NHS Digital has developed a new way to collect this data, called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection.

The new data collection reduces burden on GP practices, allowing doctors and other staff to focus on patient care.
