Patient Online Access to Their GP Record
NHS England require practices to promote and offer the facility to enable patients online access to appointments, prescriptions, allergies and adverse reactions.
Stainland Road Medical Centre confirm that they currently offer online facilities for booking & cancelling appointments, for ordering repeat prescriptions and access to patient summary records. This is done by the SystmOne Online facility. If you do not already have a user name and password for this system – you can register for this service at reception – please note you will be asked for I.D e.g. passport /driving licence.
We are also allowing patients to request Coded Data access as from 31st March 2016. Any patient who already has or is requesting online access after this date can request coded data access. This will be subject to GP approval. There is currently a technical issue with the system nationally regarding this access and although the practice will accept applications, granting this access may be delayed until this issue is resolved – this is still unresolved 26/04/16
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).
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 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.
Stainland Road Medical Centre confirms that GP to GP transfers are already active in this practice.
