Plan to meet GMS 2015-2016 Contractual Requirement for Patient on-line Services
This practice plans to offer the facility for patients to view on-line, export or print detailed coded information held in their own records from 21 March 2016.
These dates are subject to the necessary NHS GP systems and software being available to the practice.
This practice currently offers the facility for patients:
• to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments with GP Partner’s online
• to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or appliances
• 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
We currently publicise and promote our online services to our practice’s patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets and posters.
