Individual GP Level Data - CQRS
Purpose of Collection
The Government’s mandate to NHS England for 2017-182 includes a 2017-18 deliverable to work with NHS Digital and DH to provide General Practitioners (GPs) and general practices with information on the care provision for their patients.
To support this deliverable, DH has directed NHS Digital to collect clinical data for a given set of metrics at individual GP level (see Appendix A: List of agreed metrics available) and report these data back to GPs and general practices only. GPs and general practices will receive non-identifiable data for their own patients, as well as comparative Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) level and national level data they will not receive any identifiable data.
Data for patients from other general practices will only be provided in the form of this comparative CCG level and national level information. These data that are reported back to GPs and general practices will not be published or shared with any other individual or organisation.
The data collection is mandatory in line with section 259 of the Health and Social Care Act, all general practices in England must comply with the requirement and practices should therefore sign up to the collection on CQRS.
Data Provision Notice For Individual GP Level Data - Appendix A of this document provides information on the data that will be collected.
