2006/7 Data Publication Dates

I do get asked quite a bit when the new data is due to come onto the site. Well all the data comes from the various departments of health in the four countries. The current plans from England and Scotland are to release the data sometime in September. Something of a relief for me, at least, as I have to get all of the new data into the database.

As an aside the English GP patient survey 2007 has been released. As this is down to practice level and is in a reasonably friendly format I will try to put this onto the site in addition. It also includes interesting figures such as rurality (really horrible word!) and deprivation factors. For largely presentation reasons however this is unlikely to precede the full QOF data (it will be linked from the 2006/7 QOF data).
