GPES Data for Pandemic Planning & Research (COVID-19) data collection
A Data Provision Notice (DPN) has now been issued for this data collection.
The purpose of the data collection is to respond to the intense demand for GP data to be shared in support of vital planning and research for COVID-19 purposes.
The data, as specified by the DPN, supports the COVID-19 Public Health Directions 2020 from the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. Organisations that are in scope of the notice are legally required to comply. This collection is also supported by the BMA and the RCGP.
