East and North Hertfordshire CCG Information Sharing Protocol
Data from GP practices is required as one of the data flows in order to support the commissioning functions of Hertfordshire County Council (HCC), East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (ENHCCG) and Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group (HVCCG), under the National Health Service Act 2006 (as amended by the Health and Social Care Act 2012).
As outlined in the presentation to the Organisation, Performance and Development (OPD) Committee at ENHCCG in July 2015, the aim of the GP data extraction project is to enable earlier interventions and support preventative planning. The benefits will include risk profiling and integrated care pathways for high risk patients and those with complex conditions. The programme will improve planning for the needs of the population and patients in ENHCCG.
