NHS England require practices to enable successful automated uploads of any changes
to patient’s summary information, at least on a daily basis, to the summary care
record (SCR) or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31st of March 2015.
We can confirm that at this practice your SCR is already automatically updated on
at least a daily basis to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can
Having your Summary Care Record (SCR) available will help anyone treating you without
your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication
you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.
Of course if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way then
you will need to let us know so that we can update your record. You can do this via
the opt out form by clicking here.
GP to GP Record Transfers
NHS England require practices to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of
patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers (not
for temporary registration).
We confirm that at this practice GP to GP transfers are already active and we send
and receive patient records via this system.
If you leave your GP and register with a new GP, your medical records will be removed
from your previous doctor and forwarded on to your new GP via NHS England. It can
take your paper records several weeks to reach your new surgery.
With GP to GP record transfers your electronic record is transferred to
your new practice much sooner.
Patient Online Access to Their GP Record
As required by NHS England we are able to offer the facility to enable patients online
access to appointments, prescriptions and a summary of patient information to include
allergies and adverse reactions.
We confirm that at this practice we are able to offer you access to your full patient
record for entries after 31st March 2017 and all historic coded entries.
All these services are provided by the SystmOne Online facility.
You need to contact the practice so that your identification can be verified before
you have access to this facility.
