The PPR for Hospitals

Hospital waiting room

The PPR provides a central reference point and information source that streamlines the due diligence process and enables hospitals to demonstrate how seriously the sector takes patient safety. The solution facilitates data accuracy and transparency.


Specialist Profile

The definitive primary source for practitioner information covers:

  • Personal and key contact information
  • Specialties and qualifications including procedures and treatments
  • Areas of special interest
  • Confirmation of membership with regulatory bodies
  • Practising privilege history
  • Due diligence registration information such as confirmation of licence to practise and Disclosure Barring Service (DBS)

Note: Specialist Profile Example (factitious information used)

Healthcode holds a Republication Licence with the General Medical Council (GMC) for The PPR. This enables hospitals to receive alerts for any changes the GMC makes against the practitioner and immediate visibility of what those updates are via The PPR.


Benefits The PPR delivers to Hospitals

Facilitates and supports hospitals in their data Governance by fulfilling their due diligence obligations and duties, along with operational efficiencies by removing some of the manual processes involved.

Alert 518779846Staying up-to-date with key information

Automated notifications are part of the Standard Package. Notifications are sent to hospitals for any GMC or profile updates made by the practitioner.

The dashboard also alerts hospitals of any GMC warnings, overdue Medical Indemnity and Appraisal.


Compliance 1059955514Improves Governance, quality assurance and transparency

The PPR is unique in its ability to securely share data across appropriate organisations (e.g. hospitals and insurers with whom the  practitioner has a relationship) while allowing practitioners access and control of key profile information.

Efficiency 1196289760Improves operational efficiencies

Increases administrative efficiencies by reducing manual processes and eradicating duplication for practitioners. Rather than repeating the supply of information to multiple organisations, The PPR streamlines it to one central database of all practitioners, accessible by those organisations who have a relationship with them. Hospitals are alerted of any updates made to the specialist profile which therefore reduces waiting time and delays of receiving key information.



Future Development

The PPR for hospitals will evolve over time and potential enhancements are being developed in consultation with the hospital user group including:

  • Responsible Officer 
  • Revalidation status
  • When GMC fees are due
  • Where else a practitioner holds practisting privileges


The PPR roadmap also includes:

  • Procedure credentialing
  • Practising privilege administration and management
  • Enhanced dashboards for Medical Directors and Responsible Officers
  • Report generation for Governance and the Medical Advisory Committee (MAC)
