Patient Information – Contractual Changes
Practices are now required to inform patients of their plans to enable the implementation of:
· Enabling automated uploads to the Summary Care Record
· Utilisation of GP2GP, electronic transfer of medical records
· Enabling patients to view their records on line.
The date provided by HSCIC for automated uploads to the Summary Care Record for this practice is September 2014.
Information regarding Summary Care Record is available from reception together with opt out forms.
The practice will continue to utilise GP2GP, this system enables new patients records to be transferred electronically from their old practice to their new practice, it is a safe, secure way and faster way to transfer information entirely from one practice to another.
Patients who are signed up to request repeat medication on line will now also be able to view some of their medical records on line, Medications, Allergies/Adverse Reactions and Immunisations. This facility will be going live during September 2014. If you wish to have access to online services please ask at reception.
