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.

Patent Reference Group

The team at Freshwell Health Centre are keen to increase the way that patients can make their views heard.  We have set up a Patient Reference Group (PRG) to allow discussion about what we could do to be more responsive and better understand the needs of our community.

Would you like to be a volunteer member of our PRG?

We are looking for patients from all age groups and walks of life so that the PRG reflects the local population. You do not need any clinical knowledge or local expertise to join.

What will you need to do as a PRG member? 

  • Provide us with an email address so that we can contact you
  • Let us have your views on how we are doing at the moment
  • Pass on any ideas you have on how we could change things as a result of the survey

We will keep you updated on any changes we make as a result of this process.

We promise not to bombard you with emails!
