Plan to meet 2014-15 Contractual Requirement for patient online services
This practice currently offers patients’ facilities to book, view, amend, cancel, print appointments online, view blood results and immunisations.
This practice currently offers the facility for all patients to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions or medicines and appliances.
This practice can now offer patients facilities to view on line, export or print any summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and individual patient, from 31st March 2016 date, subject to the availability of supporting guidance, NHS GP systems and software. Patients wishing to take advantage of this should contact reception. You will require photo ID before the service can be set up and we reserve the right to decline a request for full access where the GP deems it may be harmful.
This practice uses GP2GP to transfer patient records when patients move practice.
This practice uploads information daily to the Summary Care Record system (for those patients who have not opted out).
We publicise and promote our online services to our practice patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and the Patient Participation Group .
In addition to the above, our plan of practice will follow the plan below:
Agree the initial small group of patients to use access to records
Write up practice policies and internal staff awareness sessions
Prepare promotion and information activities for the patients
Review any nationally provided supportive material from RCGP/NHS England
Train relevant staff for access (i.e. reception)
Commence summary information access to records for patients in practice who request this
Publicise online services to patients through website and PPG
December 2014 onwards
