Our role in PANORAMIC
NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care commissioned NHS Digital to provide a solution to find people who would be eligible for the PANORAMIC study.
The NHS Digital Population Health platform gives GPs access to a list of their patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 and may be eligible for the study. GPs use this information to make contact with the patient to offer information about taking part.
Treatment options are available for some people who have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). Between 16 December 2021 and 26 June 2023, NHS Digital provided the technology to support the NHS deliver the drugs.
