17 July 2017: Following the successful rollout of the GP Data Hub in April, the second phase is now complete, seeing a range of new functionality added to the original system.
Additional content includes information on the online services offered to patients such as repeat prescription ordering and appointment booking access, as well as practice level data on dementia, cervical screening and the numbers of patients who have opted out of data sharing.
The update has also seen the addition of Sustainability and Transformation Plan maps to reports such as dementia and GP list size, to show the data at STP area level.
The GP Data Hub provides an online repository of statistics about individual GP practices in England and offers journalists, patients, charities and health care professionals with a single port of call on information ranging from the number of staff and patients at a practice to measurements on how well the practice is coping with public health concerns.
Patients can use the data to compare their practice to neighbouring or former practices, and researchers and health care professionals are able to analyse data quickly and effectively.
