GP2GP (1st January 2015)

From 1st January 2015 the Practice will be implementing GP2GP.  This is a system which enables patients' electronic health records to be transferred directly and securely between GP Practices.  The GP2GP process starts when a new patient registers with a Practice and is accepted onto their list. 

The system will improve patient care as GPs will usually have full and detailed medical records available to them for a new patient's first consultation.

GP2GP electronic transfers will be more accurate and secure - and much faster than the current paper-based approach, which can take weeks to complete.

 

DATA EXTRACTION - How Information about You Helps Us To Provide Better Care

Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone.

This information along with your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.

This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.

You have a choice.  If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. 

More detailed information can be found by clicking on the Care Data tab (16) on the right hand side of this page.
