Statement of Intent
New contractual requirements came into force from 1 April 2014 requiring that GP Practices should make available a statement of intent by 30th September 2014 in relation to the following IT developments;
Patient On-line Services
The practice offers patients the facility via Patient Access (App available) to:
- Book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online
- Order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or applicances
If you are not already registered to use this service please ask at reception or by telephone 0161 427 9388
The practice plans to offer all patients facilities to view online, export or print summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and individual patient, by March 2015 following configuration within our clinical system.
The practice makes use of GP2GP messaging technology, this enables us where possible, to receive their clinical records electronically as new patients join the practice. Similarly where patients leave the practice we are able to send their records electronically to their new practice (where enabled).
More information on GP2GP can be found HERE
Summary Care Record (SCR)
The practice uploads for its patients a Summary Care Record on the basis of implied consent (unless you have opted out). A Summary Care Record is an electronic record, which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any adverse reactions to medicines you have had.
The SCR should only be viewed in emergency or urgent care settings with the explicit consent of the patient unless the patient is unable to give their consent (for example a patient is unconscious).
More information on the Summary Care Record can be seen HERE
If you wish to opt out of having a Summary Care Record you can print a form HERE
Chadsfield Medical Practice confirms that your SCR is automatically updated on at least a daily basis to ensure that your information is up to date.
Further information about patient information sharing is contained on THIS FORM which you can print, sign and hand in to the practice if you wish to change your consent.
