We now offer the ability for patients to view parts of their medical records online
NHS England requires practices to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to patients summary information,at least on a daily basis, to the summary care record(SCR) or have plans in place to achieve this by 31st of March 2015
Having your SCR available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that ypu have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.
If you do not want to have your medical records to be available in this way then you will need to let us know and we can update your record.
Church Hill Surgerycan confirm that your SCR is automatically updated on a daily basis.

With GP to GP record transfers your electronic record is transferred to your new pracice much quicker. GP to GP transfers are already active at Church Hill.
It is very important that you are registered with a doctor at all times
Patient Online Access to their GP Record
NHS England requires practices to promote and offer the facility to enable patients online access to appointments,prescriptions,allergies andadverse reactions or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31st of March 2015.
We currently offer the facility for booking and cancelling appointments and for ordering your repeat prescriptions online. This is done by the SystmOnline facility. If you do not already have a user name and passwordfor this system -please ask at reception you will be asked to provide proof of identity.
Our Practice is planning to offer patients the facility to view areas of their records online. The areas patients will be able to access will include a summary of information relating to medications,allergies and adverse reactions. As well as viewing this information there will be the facility to download and print it. This will hopefully be available by 31st of March 2015, subject to the availability of this service on our clinical system. Once the system is up and running ,if patients do require access to other parts of their records they will need to speak to the practice to facilitate this.
