Important Plans for Accessible Electronic Patient Records
Our Statement of Intent
We are required, by NHS England, to provide the following services by 31st March 2015:
· Summary Care Records (SCR)
Debenham Group practice is able to update changes to our patients Summary Care Records at least once every working day. This update has been in place since 26th November 2014
· Patient Access to their GP Record
We now offer our patients the facility to view online, export or print any summary information from their records i.e. medications, allergies and adverse reactions along with any other information which has been agreed individually between our patients and their GP.
It is our intention that both of the above will be fully available by the required date, if not before.
· GP2GP Record Transfers
We are actively using this facility to transfer patient records between practices when a patient either registers or de-registers with us. This does not apply to temporary registrations.
