RCGP Covid Research

This practice is one of over 600 practices in England contributing pseudonymised data for national research and surveillance.

These data enable continuous monitoring of infections and diseases in the community and is used in ethically approved research. The RCGP RSC is the main source of information for Public Health England (PHE) and helps with prediction and management of flu out-breaks and pandemics.

Providing pseudonymised data does not affect patients, their care or privacy, however if you no longer wish to allow your information to be used, please let us know.

The pseudonymised data, extracted by an information service provider, Wellbeing Software (also known as Apollo Medical Solutions), is processed within the private and secure net-work of the Clinical Informatics and Health Outcomes Research Group at University of Sur-rey under a formal data sharing agreement. The pseudonymised data may be linked with oth-er NHS data for analysis, including hospital episode statistics.
