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 daily collection of GP patient data will start from 1st September 2021. You have the right to decide whether you want to share your data.
