Practices are required to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to a patient’s summary information, at least on a daily basis to the Summary Care record, or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31st March 2015. Having your Summary Care Record 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 an opt-out form, please ask at reception.
Practice is live with SCR. However if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way then you will need to let us know, so we can update your records.
There is a contractual requirement to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient’s records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers. It is very important that you are registered with a doctor at all times. 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 several weeks for your paper records to reach your new surgery. With GP to GP record transfers, your electronic record is transferred to your new practice much sooner.
Practice meets this requirement and is live with GP2GP
