Transfer of Patient Records (GP2GP)
GP practices are obliged to make available a statement of intent regarding GP2GP. This document is the Statement of Intent from Great Bentley Surgery.
The Government requires all practices to utilise the electronic GP2GP facility for transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers (not for temporary registration), or have publicised plans in place to achieve this by March 31st 2015.
This practice uses the GP2GP facility for all transfers of patient records unless there is an issue with the receiving practice’s computer system which does not allow or provide such transfers. The practice clinical system is fully compliant with GP2GP.
Great Bentley Surgery confirm that GP to GP transfers are already active and we send and receive patient records via this system.
