Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)

One of the Government’s key aims is to modernise health services and to improve health outcomes by putting patients first in every decision that the NHS makes.  Underpinning this vision is the need for high quality information so that everybody can make the right decisions at the right time.  A modern data service is being developed for the NHS that will provide NHS organisations, citizens and researchers with accurate, timely information which will radically transform the way we care for and treat people and continuously improve the services we offer.

NHS England is commissioning a modern data service from the HSCIC on behalf of the entire health and social care system.  Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.  NHS England  has the power to direct the HSCIC to collect information from all providers of NHS care including general practices.  The data to be extracted by GP practices were considered by the Joint GP IT Committee of the British Medical Association and the Royal College of General Practitioners, as well as an independent advisory group.

The General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) will be used to extract GP data each month.  Initially the data will cover the period from April 2013 onwards.  The identifiers to be extracted are: NHS number, date of birth, postcode, and gender which will allow patients GP data to be linked to their hospital data.  No free text will be extracted, only coded information about referrals, NHS prescriptions and other clinical data.
