Clinical Practice Research Datalink

Practices have an opportunity to gain useful feedback to help improve patient care, contribute to medical research and earn extra income by joining Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD). 

More than 1100 GP practices already take part, contributing anonymised data which is used in vital drug and vaccine studies such as proving the safety of the whooping cough vaccination during pregnancy.  

For 30 years, GP practices across the UK have contributed de-identified data to CPRD.

A key benefit of joining is receiving regular practice-level prescribing and patient safety quality improvement reports, which help GPs to review patient care. Case review from QI reports can be used in annual appraisals. Practices can also earn extra money by completing questionnaires and taking part in clinical trials, and contributing data ensures your patients are represented in research evidence that informs national clinical guidance and best practice.
