General Practice to Diabetic Retinopathy Screening (GP2DRS) is a system which automates the sharing of patient information between general practices and local diabetic eye screening programmes. This makes the process easier by extracting the information directly from General Practice (GP) systems and removing the need for manual processing.
Information regarding eligible patients is obtained from general practices using the General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) and is entirely reliant on correct information being recorded in GP systems. Once extracted, the data is uploaded into the GP2DRS database, designed by Public Health England, and enables local screening programmes to view and use the data to identify and invite eligible patients for diabetic retinopathy screening.
