Care Data

The NHS is changings and services are being restructured. These reforms will impact upon the way that clinical data are collected, shared and analysed. Under the powers of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (HSCA), the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) can, under certain circumstances, require Personal Confidential Data (PCD) from GP practices without seeking patient consent. One of the first initiatives using these new powers is the care data service.

Important notice regarding fit note data

Jan 2016

Dept of Work and Pensions will start to collect fit note data from GP systems across England in January 2016 and will start to publish the data from spring 2016. 

Data shared with DWP and all published data will be completely anonymous to protect patient privacy. The information will include:

  • how many computer-generated fit notes are issued
  • how many patients are recorded as ‘unfit’ or ‘maybe fit’ for work
  • fit note duration
  • gender
  • health condition (less common health conditions will not be published to ensure patients cannot be identified)
  • location, including Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) areas
  • whether workplace adaptations are recommended

We have been assured that no one will be able to identify individual patients at any stage.
