Abstract

The General Practice Research Database (GPRD) is the world's largest computerized database of anonymized longitudinal patient records from general practice and is a unique public health research tool. Several issues have threatened the viability of the database in recent years; in April 1999 responsibility for its management and financial control was transferred to the UK Medicines Control Agency (MCA). This presentation outlines the MCA's plans and future vision for the GPRD.
