The service makes patient medical information available to clinicians when and where they need it leading to improvements in the care provided.
GP Connect is already helping GP practices share appointments with the Covid Clinical Assessment Service (CCAS), across Extended Access Hubs and with support services like NHS 111 to meet targets set out in the GMS Contract.
We’ve achieved full roll-out approval for 96 per cent of GP Practices in England for:
- Access Record: HTML which allows you to view a patient’s GP practice record
- Appointment Management which lets you share and manage appointments
Our team is working hard to make this functionality available across all GP Practices in England. You can keep up to date on how this is progressing.
We’re committed to deliver the following additional functionality across all GP clinical systems:
- the capacity to import or download data on a patient’s medicines and allergies with Access Record: Structured
- Send Document allows systems to automatically send a consultation summary back to the patient’s registered practice in the form of a PDF document, detailing the consultation and actions taken.
These products will save time for clinicians, and provide better, more convenient care for patients. It will also help meet targets under NHS England’s Improving Access to General Practice programme.
The programme is supporting Extended Access Providers, the creation of Primary Care Networks and the Local Health Care Record Exemplar approaches highlighted in the NHS 10-year plan.
