Our primary care team mainly deals with data from GP practices. We design the technical specifications for data extractions on a range of topics within the General Practice Extraction Service (GPES), analysing the data and disseminating our findings. We also collect data about dentists, opticians and community pharmacies.
We manage the National Health Application and Infrastructure Service (NHAIS). The NHAIS is a suite of software implemented across primary care that collects workforce data, patient registration and demographic data. It also provides:
- a data centre hosting service
- a prescription pricing divisional data service
- a cytology statistics service for breast and cervical screening
- a print management service
