GP Data for Planning & Research - ON HOLD Posted on 2 Aug 2021

The planned GP Data for Planning and Research Programme (GPDPR) which had caused a great deal of public concern about privacy has now been suspended following the criticism. 

Patients no longer need to register a Type 1 opt out before 1st September 2021 to prevent their data leaving the practice.

Patient data will not be extracted from GP Practices until NHS Digital have undertaken further work including public engagement and consultation.
