Extraction of Anonymous Fit Note Data in England

The Department of Work and Pension (DWP) will start to collect fit note data from GP systems across England in February 2016 and will start to publish the data from Spring 2016. The first data collection will include fit notes issued from December 2014 but this will exclude data about patients who have objected to identifiable data about them leaving the GP practice for purposes beyond their direct care prior to the time this first collection is made. Data collection for any patient who registers an objection subsequently will be excluded from the point this is registered.

We are legally required under Section 259 (5) of the Health and Social Care Act to provide the data in the published Data Provision Notice.
