General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) Posted on 8 Jun 2021

NHS Digital announced earlier this month that it will be rolling out a ‘new  and improved’ GP data collection system from 1 July called ""General Practice Data for Planning and Research"" (GPDPR), with patients wanting to opt out having to do so by 23 June.

NHS Digital said the collected data will be used ‘for better planning of healthcare services and for use in medical research’ and that the new system will be ‘more efficient’ at doing this than the current General Practice Extraction Service  (GPES) process.

More information is available here as well as relevant opt-in / opt-out forms;
