GENERAL PRACTICE DATA FOR PLANNING & RESEARCH (GPDfPR) DELAYED On Tuesday 7th June 2021 Health Minister Jo Churchill MP advised the House of Commons that the GPDfPR programme implementation date has been moved back to 1st September 2021 to allow “more time to talk to patients, Drs, and other stakeholders”.
This followed protests at the short timescale of setting the programme up by 23rd June and widespread concerns about patient opt outs.
