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.
GP practices are now able to receive suspended patient health records electronically with electronic health records (EHRs) arriving via GP2GP. This will help to reduce the amount of time you spend on administration.
De-registered patients who don't register elsewhere
For patients who de-register from your practice list and do not register elsewhere, you will still need to print electronic records, in line with your usual process.
Changes later in the year will mean that these suspended patient records will be held electronically in a national electronic records repository.
Find out more information about the upgrade, what a suspended record is and why this is being done on FutureNHS, using the link below.
You will need to register for FutureNHS if you don't already have an account.
