General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) Data Extraction - Make Your Choice
Patient data from GP medical records kept by GP practices in England is used to improve health, care and services through planning and research, helping to find better treatments and improve patient care. The NHS is introducing an improved way to share this information – called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection.
Choose if data from your health records is shared for research and planning
- choose if your confidential patient information is used for research and planning
- change or check your current choice
Your choice will be applied by:
- NHS Digital
- all other health and care organisations by 31 July 2022 (delayed from March 2020 to allow organisations to focus on the COVID-19 outbreak).
Any choice you make will not impact your individual care.

Patient Participation Group
Our Patient Participation Group is a member of the National Association of Patient Participation, whose aim is to enable patients and their medical practice to achieve high quality and responsive care. The Association’s aims are as follows:-
To act as ‘critical friend’ to provide a patients’ perspective ensuring services, plans and activities respond to patients needs and priorities.
To foster communication with the wider patient population building stronger patient-doctor relationships.
To provide practical support to practice teams e.g. conducting and analysing patient surveys, organizing health awareness events etc.
To encourage those with long term and/or multiple health conditions to gain confidence in managing and taking control of their health and care.
To help other patients take more responsibility for their health and make informed decision.
