Following on from the guidance that GPC England (GPCE) shared with practices last Friday, the BMA are expecting to continue dialogue with NHS England in the coming week to ascertain how practices can be best supported in the lead up to the 31st October go-live date and beyond.
Practices are strongly advised to carry out a practice Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) if they have not already done so, and may wish to use the BMA’s DPIA as a template.
This can be found here alongside a suite of resources (listed below) which practices can use in helping to prepare for prospective records access to their patients;
GPCE remains committed to supporting practices as they navigate this programme and will refresh and cascade resources on a regular basis.
