GP Connect Access Record: Structured - FHIR API

Retrieve structured information from a patient’s GP practice record.


Use this API to retrieve structured information from a patient’s GP practice record. Structured information is patient data in a coded format that a consuming system can import and process.

You can retrieve data from their GP Practice record for a number of areas including:

  • medications
  • allergies
  • immunizations
  • uncategorised items
  • consultations
  • problems
  • investigations
  • outbound referrals
  • diary entries

For example:

  • active checking of a patient's prescription in unscheduled care

  • out of hours GP accesses patient's medications, allergies and problems

  • dentist reviews the GP record when they treat a patient

  • midwife views patient record before visiting a patient

  • community cardiac nurse accesses GP record before visiting a patient
