GP2GP Record Transfers
From April 2014 all GP practices are required to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient Electronic Health Record (EHR) between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers. The facility allows for the records to be transferred faster and more secure than the current paper-based method.
Sherrington Park Medical Centre has been using this service to transfer records to other practices that are using SystmOne and we are now working towards implementing new functionality to enable us to transfer records to practices using different clinical system to ours i.e. EMIS. We are hoping to achieve this by 31 March 2015 and we will be keeping patients informed of the progress via our website and notices in the reception.
Patient Access to Medical Records
Patients now have the facility to view online, export and/or print any summary information from their records i.e. medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any additional information agreed between the GP and the patient. Please contact reception for further information.
Named GP for Patients aged 75 and Over
Sherrington Park Medical Practice already operates a personal list and patients are familiar with having a personal GP. The named GP has overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides for them. The named GP will also work with other health and care professionals to ensure that those patients over 75 who are vulnerable and at risk of admission to hospital has a care plan which meets their individual needs.
