General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR)

NHS Digital’s daily collection of GP data will support vital health and care planning and research.

3 June 2021

You may have noted in the media plans by NHS Digital to extract data from GP patient records.

It is all happening quite suddenly, and we want to make sure you are all aware of this, and have enough time to think about it, and make an informed decision on how your data is used.

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

If you wish to opt out, you must inform us by 23 June 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 –

  • Either by dropping off a signed paper copy at the surgery
  • Email us a photo of the signed form to [email protected]

A copy of the Type 1 opt out form can be downloaded here
