General Practice Data for Planning and Research

The way data is collected from GP systems is being replaced.

This collection is called GP Data for Planning and Research and its purpose is to support the data needs of the health and social care system including policy development, public health, planning and commissioning of services and research.  This new collection is designed to reduce the number of requests for access to data received by general practice.
