GP2GP electronic record transfer

GP2GP allows patients' electronic health records to be transferred directly, securely, and quickly between their old and new practices, when they change GPs. This improves patient care by making full and detailed medical records available to practices, for a new patient's first and later consultations.

The service is managed by NHS Digital. Further information can be accessed on their website here.

An NHS Digital guide is also available to download here. The guide covers:

  • Benefits of using GP2GP
  • Staff roles and responsibilities
  • Registration and requesting the electronic record
  • Integrating the received record
  • Checks, actions, and summarising
  • Allergies, adverse reaction, inbound medications
  • Why didn’t I receive an electronic health record?
  • Can I integrate returning patient’s records?
  • What do I print for leaving patients?
