Plan to Meet GMS / PMS 2015-16 Contractual Requirement for Patient Online Service
This practice plans to offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print detailed coded information held in their own records from 1st April 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 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 will publicise and promote our online services to our practice’s patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and the Patient Participation Group by 1st April 2016.
