NHS Scotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records. SPIRE is a service that will allow small amounts of anonymised information from GP practice records to be used to help doctors’ surgeries, NHSScotland and the Scottish Government to improve care and plan services, and to help researchers to learn more from patient information held at GP practices.
To find out more on the benefits of the service, and the confidential and secure way in which GP patient records will be used to help plan and improve health care services go to SPIRE.SCOT
