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:-

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
