New contractual requirements came into force from 1st April 2015 requiring that GP practices should make available a statement of intent in relation to the following IT developments:-
1. Referral Management
2. Electronic Appointment Booking
3. On line Booking of repeat prescriptions
4. Summary Care Record
5. GP2GP transfers
6. Patient Access to the detailed information from the medical record.
The Hermitage practice now offers to our patients all of the requirements under the GP contract relating to IT developments and are working closely with our Clinical System Suppliers to allow patients to access the detailed information from their medical record. It is our intention to have this development available to our patients by 31st March 2016.
