Our secure service GP Connect is helping GP practices get the patient information they need to offer care, and to enable electronic transfer of Covid Clinical Assessment Service (CCAS) patients to primary care.
To help the NHS to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are giving authorised staff, including GPs, authorised GP practice staff and NHS 111 clinicians access to the GP records of the patients they are treating, regardless of where they are registered. We are also opening shared appointments for all practices so that staff can book appointments for patients across the GP estate (by local arrangement). This will enable healthcare professionals to provide more timely care and provide flexibility for the primary care system. This change will apply for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic only. Unless alternative arrangements have been put in place before the end of the emergency period, this change will be reversed.
Set up GP Connect to support electronic transfer of CCAS patients. This allows CCAS to book appointments directly into your clinical system. CCAS will pass certain patients suspected of suffering from coronavirus (COVID-19) out to primary care when appropriate, for further assessment and treatment.
