Data Provision Notices (DPNs)
We issue a Data Provision Notice each time we use our statutory power under sections 259(1)(a) and 259(1)(b) of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
When we receive a Direction or Request to collect information, we issue a Data Provision Notice to the appropriate providers of the specified data. The Data Provision Notice provides details of the data collection including:
- form, manner and frequency
- what we are allowed to do with the data (publish, disseminate for example)
A list of our current Data Provision Notices can be found below. Note that the ones relevant to COVID-19 data collections are at the top of the list.
