Overview of services available
New contractual requirements came into force from 1st April 2014 requiring that GP practices should make available a Statement of Intent in relation to the following IT developments:
- Electronic Appointment Booking
- Online Booking of Repeat Prescriptions
- Patient Access to their GP Record
- Summary Care Records (SCR)
- Electronic transfer of patient records (GP2GP)
1. Electronic Appointment Booking
Practices should promote and offer the facility for patients to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online.
Alrewas Surgery currently provides the facility to book, view, amend and print appointments online via Patient Access. Patients can register by contacting the surgery for the required information & forms - these are also available for you to print out towards the top of this page.
2. Online Booking of Repeat Prescriptions
Practices should promote and offer the facility for patients to order online and view and print a list of their repeat prescription for drugs, medicines or appliances online.
Alrewas Surgery currently provides this facility via its website. Patients can register directly via our website: click on the Prescriptions link on the left of the screen, then Repeat Prescriptions, then Order Your Repeat Prescriptions Online.
3. Patient Access to their GP Record
Practices should promote and offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print any summary information and detailed coded information from their records as agreed between the practice and patient.
Alrewas Surgery currently provides the facility to view medications, allergies, adverse reactions and immunisations via Patient Access. From 31 March 2016, this will also include access to detailed coded information. Patients can register by contacting the surgery for the required information & forms - these are also available for you to print out towards the top of this page.
4. Summary Care Record (SCR)
Practices are required to have processes in place to automatically upload any changes to a patient's summary information to the Summary Care Record (SCR).
Having your Summary Care Record available will help any healthcare professional treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.
Alrewas Surgery undertook this in May 2014. From April 2018 we also offer patients the option to give access to their Enhanced Summary Care Record. Please see the separate section on Summary Care Records for further details
5. Electronic Transfer of Patient Records (GP2GP)
Practices should utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of all patient records between practices where patients register/de-register.
It is very important that you are registered with a doctor at all times. If you leave your GP surgery and register with a new GP, your medical records will be removed from your previous doctor and forwarded to your new GP by NHS England, although it can take several weeks for your paper records to reach your new surgery. With GP to GP record transfers, your electronic record is transferred to your new practice much sooner.
Alrewas Surgery can confirm that GP2GP transfers are already active and we send and receive patient records via this system
