Access for Children aged between 11 – 16
The Local Medical Committee (LMC) guidance is that good practice is to suspend parental access to order repeat prescriptions and book online appointments for children aged 11 to under 16 years until they choose to register themselves from the age of 16. This policy is deemed in the child’s best interests as they may not be able to maintain confidentiality of their medical record at home.
Exceptions to this will be made by the GP if this is deemed necessary.

*Patients who already have online access will not automatically be given access to view their medical record, this will need to be a separate application – please download and complete the forms below and hand them into the surgery and your application will be considered by your named GP.

- Summary of Suspected Inaccuracies in Detailed Patient Record
New contractual arrangements came into force on 1st April 2014 requiring GP practices to make available a statement of intent about the following IT developments:
1. Referral Management Information
2. Online Appointment Booking
3. Online Booking of repeat prescriptions
4. Summary Care Record
5. GP2GP transfers of care records
6. Patient Access to electronic records.
Please find below details of the arrangements we have in place for these developments at this Practice.
Referral Management Information
Practices must include the NHS Number as the primary identifier in all NHS clinical correspondence issued by the practice.
Electronic Appointment Booking
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for all patients, who wish to, to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online.
Online Booking of Repeat Prescriptions
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for all patients, who wish to, to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for necessary drugs, medicines or appliances.
Interoperable Records/Summary Care Record
Practices are required to upload changes to a patient’s summary information, at least daily, to the Summary Care record.
Having your Summary Care Record available will help other doctors and nurses treating you away from your regular surgery, without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs to which you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity. Read more details about the Summary Care Record.
GP2GP transfers of Care Records
We are required to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers.
It is very important that you are registered with a doctor at all times. If you leave your GP and register with a new one, your medical records will be removed from your previous doctor and forwarded to your new GP via NHS England. It can take several weeks for paper records to reach the new surgery; with GP2GP, your electronic record is transferred to your new practice much sooner.
Patient access to their electronic GP record
We are required to promote and offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print any summary of information from their records relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other additional details which have been agreed with the patient.
