PCN - Data Sharing Agreement
NHS England has published a data sharing and data processing template for PCNs, jointly agreed with the GPC England, which are available on the NHS England GP contract page - click here. I have also attached the two documents to this email.
While the use of these templates is not mandatory, and PCNs remain free to enter into different forms of data sharing and data processing agreements, their aim is to help PCNs develop their data sharing and processing activities when delivering services under the network contract directed enhanced service. BMA guidance on this will be available shortly.
If the template is used, it must be developed further between the members of the Primary Care Network. Guidance notes are included at the end the template.
