Use this API to send patient data from General Practice (GP) clinical systems to General Practice Extraction Service (GPES). This data can then be used for planning and research.
- receive requests for data
- send requested data
For example, the GPES data for pandemic planning and research is used to support the response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This data is used to analyse healthcare information about patients, for the duration of the coronavirus emergency period.
The API is asynchronous. To send and receive messages, you need to use MESH.
Environments and testing
This API uses MESH.
As a developer, you are most likely to want to connect to MESH using either the MESH client or the MESH API.
For more details about using the MESH client, see MESH client.
For the MESH API, there are several independent, externally accessible instances of MESH you can use for testing. For more details, see MESH API - Environments and testing.
