Recording of ethnicity information

It is now a contractual requirement for GPs to record patients’ ethnicity information in their patient record if that person, or someone authorised on their behalf, chooses to share it.

The information, which is optional and does not affect registration, should be recorded in coded form using the available categories, which include “prefer not to say”. The GMS and PMS Regulations amendment is available here.
