IT/Electronic Patient Records Statement of Intent
Summary Care Record (SCR)
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 possibly be.
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 our online opt out form.
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 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.
To request online access you will need to fill out our online registration form.
