NHS England IT Requirements

In accordance with NHS England's IT requirements Forest House Surgery complies with the following:

  • All of our clinical correspondence includes the NHS Number of the patient

  • Any relevant changes to a patient's medical record are updated to the patient's 'summary care record' (SCR) on a daily basis. Currently the SCR shows details of the patients current medication, allergies and adverse reactions. A patient can request to have an enhanced summary care record. This means that together with your GP you can decide on any additional information that may be relevant for other health care professionals to know about you in the event of an emergency

  • Our Practice uses the GP2GP facility to transfer medical records electronically between participating practices when registering and de-registering patients

  • Our Practice offers the facility to order and view repeat medications and appliances online

  • Our Practice offers the facility to book, view and amend appointments online

  • Our Practice offers the facility for patients to view online and print off information from their own summary care record (SCR) and access to their detailed coded record
