Direct Care APIs use case submission form

We need to understand how you plan to use the Direct Care APIs (GP Connect), or what problem you’re hoping to solve by using one of our products. This form is to gather that information and understand how this, in turn, will benefit the NHS and patients. 

Once submitted, the form will be reviewed by the team and a response provided within 14 days. If your use case is accepted, we will provide you with the relevant information to begin the onboarding process.

By completing this form, you are agreeing that your use case is for the purpose of direct care only.

Before you start

Before completing the form, please visit the GP Connect prerequisites page on our Consumer Support Hub to make sure you understand the requirements of developing against the Direct Care APIs. 

Some GP Connect APIs are still in development. See current statuses on our specifications page.

The National Data Sharing Arrangement (NDSA) sets out the data sharing requirements and obligations for the use of GP Connect for end user organisations.

If you have any questions, please contact: [email protected].
