About Online Services

Statement of intent

New contractual requirements came into force from 1st April 2014 requiring that GP practices should enable and promote a range of online patient facilities: 

  1. Online booking of appointments
  2. Online ordering of repeat prescriptions
  3. Summary Care Record
  4. GP2GP transfers
  5. Patient access to electronic records

 Please find below details of Oldfield Surgery's approach with regard to these developments.

  

Online booking of appointments

Practices are required to promote and offer to registered patients the facility to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online.

We currently offer these facilities - please click the 'online services' link at the bottom of our home page to access.

  

Online ordering of repeat prescriptions

Practices are required to promote and offer to registered patients the facility to order repeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or appliances online; and to view and print a list of any drugs, medicines or appliances in respect of which the patient has a repeat prescription.

We currently offer these facilities - please click the 'online services' link at the bottom of our home page to access.

 

Summary Care Record (SCR)

Where there is a change to the information included in a patient’s medical record, practices must enable an automated upload of summary information from its clinical IT system to the Summary Care Record, at least on a daily basis. The summary information will include details of medications, allergies and any adverse reactions to medications. SCRs provide healthcare staff treating patients in an emergency or out-of-hours with faster access to key clinical information.

We currently offer these facilities. However, if you don’t want your medical records to be available in this way please let us know - you will need to complete an opt-out form.

  

GP2GP record transfers

There is a contractual requirement to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers.

It is very important that you are registered with a doctor at all times. If you leave your GP and register with a new GP, your medical records will be removed from your previous doctor and forwarded on to your new GP via NHS England. It can take several weeks for your paper records to reach your new surgery. With GP2GP record transfers, your electronic record is transferred to your new practice much sooner.

We currently use this facility.

 

Patient access to electronic records

Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for registered patients to view online, export or print summary information from their records - relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions, and any additional data which has been agreed between the clinician and the patient.

We currently offer this facility - please click the 'online services' link at the bottom of our home page to access.
