Please be aware, from 1 September, 2021, patient data will be extracted from GP records to support health and care planning and research in England; this national initiative is known as General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR). The aim of this is to help find better treatments and improve patient outcomes for everyone. However, we recognise that you may wish to opt-out of having your information shared and additional information on how to do so is available here.
