SPIRE Project

spire-logo-split Scottish Primary Care Information Resource (SPIRE)

The Scottish Primary Care Information Resource (SPIRE) is a set of tools that provide local reporting within GP practices and will enable national data extraction from general practice clinical systems. SPIRE has been developed in conjunction with input from GPs, Practice Managers, IT facilitators and other key stakeholders.

Examples of practice reports that have already been developed include eFrailty Index (eFI), multimorbidity, influenza and shingles vaccinations.

As at July 2019, SPIRE software has been installed in 95% of practices across Scotland and over 1,500 users have attended training. New versions of the software, designed to resolve many of the issues found in earlier versions and bring improvements on functionality, are currently being deployed. Further information on SPIRE and its deployment can be found on our website.

SNUG hold a variety of SPIRE videos, please visit the Members Day page for more information.

If you have any technical queries regarding access to the software and reports please contact your local IT Helpdesk.

For general SPIRE enquiries contact the team at NSS – nss.spire@nhs.net
