Collection of GP Data NHS Digital released a statement last month regarding the launch of the new system they will be using to collect GP data, called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) service. The statement highlights that NHS Digital will only share data with organisations who have a legal basis and meet strict criteria to use it for local, regional and national planning, policy development, commissioning, public health and research purposes. They have also developed a public advice webpage to explain how and why the data is being used.

The CREAMER fund was started in the early 1990s with donations from families in memory of their loved ones:

  • Mr Ronald Hardy

CREAMER is an acronym for Community Resource Equipment And Medical Equipment Reserve Fund. The Fund has grown considerably over the years with tremendous support from the community and various fundraising events being organised. Many people feel that donations provide a lasting memorial to their loved ones.

The aim of the CREAMER Fund is to help provide health resources and equipment to enable members of the local community to receive the best possible health care, as near to their homes as feasible.
