How we use your data


There have been recent articles in the press about the NHS sharing your data and having the option to opt-out.

The data held in the GP medical records of patients is used every day to support health and care planning, and research in England to help find better treatments and improve patient outcomes for everyone.

NHS Digital has developed a new way to collect this data, called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection.

The new data collection reduces the burden on GP practices, allowing Doctors and other staff to focus on patient care.
