From the 1st July, the NHS will change how it shares your GP medical record. The General Practice Data for Planning and Research data extract by NHS Digital from GP Practices across England will help the NHS to improve health and care services for everyone, by collecting patient data and holding it in a central national database.
This is an upgrade to an existing similar process called GPES – General Practice Extract Service, this new data collection will be more efficient, effective, and much more frequent.
For example, patient data held in this new national database can help the NHS to:
- monitor the long-term safety and effectiveness of care
- plan how to deliver better health and care services
- prevent the spread of infectious diseases
- identify new treatments and medicines through health research
Privacy Notice June 2021
If you would not like your GP data shared with NHS Digital using GPDPR, you need to register an opt-out with your GP Practice, before the 30th September 2021. In this article we explain:
- How the opt-outs work
- What you might want to consider before making a decision

How to access your GP surgery
Welcome to Parkfield Medical Centre's website, where you can access the wide range of health services available at our surgery. The site provides online facilities, including appointment booking and cancellation and prescription ordering etc. Please find enclosed our practice leaflet. It also contains a vast range of health information and resources available, along with practical information on visiting the surgery. We hope you will find the website useful and informative.
We have now changed how we make appointments for future bookings to ensure we are prepared and you are protected.
You must telephone the surgery to speak to a receptionist who will then arrange the best care for you depending on your need. This will likely be a phone call or a video call. You will now ALWAYS be telephoned by a Clinician BEFORE a face to face appointment is booked at the surgery and we will be using telephone and video consultations more frequently.
