Support for the COVID-19 Vaccination

GP Connect is helping with appointment management for the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

GP Connect Appointment Management functionality can be used to offer cross-organisational vaccination booking within the primary care network (PCN) delivery model, between practices which use different GP systems.

Designated vaccination sites need to set up their GP clinical system to allow appointments to be booked in and other PCN practices also need to configure their systems to enable them to book their patients into the designated vaccination site.

We’ve created some simple guidance to help you get set up.

Cegedim Healthcare Solutions – Vision

NHS Digital is working with Cegedim Healthcare Solutions, previously known as Vision, to deliver GP Connect Appointment Management functionality to Vision users.

Due to the complexity of this project involving multiple parties there were a number of contingencies and technical challenges that we’ve been managing. Unforeseen difficulties, along with work to support COVID-19 vaccinations have delayed completion. We are now aiming to complete this project mid-January 2021.

Vision users can prepare for the availability of the GP Connect Appointment Management within the Vision system by following the steps outlined on the Cegedim website.

GP Connect Access Record HTML functionality for Vision is in the latter stages of assurance and is in live use across 60 Vision sites nationally.
