General Practice to Diabetic Retinopathy Screening (GP2DRS) Data Provision Notice

Summary

The purpose of this data collection is to improve the process for inviting patients to attend an eye screening appointment. This requirement is being implemented by the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) on behalf of Public Health England (PHE).

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.
