The data held in 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. The new data collection, known as the General Practice Data for Planning and Research, reduces burden on GP practices, allowing doctors and other staff to focus on patient care. NHS Digital has engaged with the British Medical Association, Royal College of GP's and the National Data Guardian to ensure relevant safeguards are in place for patients and GP practices.

From 1st September 2021 pseudonymised (non-identifiable patient data) data from GP medical records will be shared with NHS Digital. NHS Digital will not collect patients' names and addresses. Any other data that could directly identify patients (such as NHS Number, Date of Birth, full postcode) is replaced with unique codes via de-identification software before the data is shared with NHS Digital.

If you do not want your identifiable patient data to be shared with NHS Digital you can opt-out by registering a National Data Opt-out via the below link:-

In Times of Bereavement

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
  • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Register the death

If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.

You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.

You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Arrange the funeral

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:

These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral costs

Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
