General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) for physical health-checks for people with Severe Mental Illness (SMI)
ACTION REQUIRED: General Practices have received an invitation to participate in the collection on the 26/11/2020 via the Calculating Quality Reporting Services (CQRS). It is essential that all practices accept the invitation. Thank you to those of you who already have accepted. Further information can be found in the Data Provision Notice, and the Directions, which specify the legal basis for this collection.
The NHS Long Term Plan commits to 280,000 people with a Severe Mental Illness (SMI) receiving a full annual physical health check in 2021-22 rising to 390,000 people in 2023-24. Currently PHSMI data is collected quarterly via the Strategic Data Collection Service (SDCS). This collection method can be resource intensive to administer and the data is not as robust as a direct extract from GP clinical systems. We have therefore directed NHS Digital to establish a PHSMI GPES data collection to help monitor this key NHS Long Term Plan commitment.
GPES for PHSMI
This move to GPES will eventually reduce the burden on systems and improve the quality and completeness of the data. The NHS Digital Strategic Data Collection Service (SDCS) will continue to run alongside the GPES extract until the data is of sufficient quality and coverage to terminate this arrangement.
NHS Digital will extract a full year of data initially and thereafter on a quarterly basis. The first extract is scheduled to take place in the second half of 2020-21 financial year and will cover the previous financial year of 2019-20.
If practices have any technical questions regarding this collection, please contact email@example.com.
