Transferring Your Electronic

Health Record

 

Your GP practice holds copies of your patient health record electronically and in paper format. Both contain the healthcare information about you that your GP needs including your medical history, medications, allergies, immunisations and vaccinations.

If you have previously registered with a different GP in England, upon registering at this practice your electronic health record will, where possible, be transferred automatically from your previous practice through the use of an NHS system called GP2GP

 

Patients Benefits

When patients move practices, paper medical records can take weeks to arrive but GP2GP transfers are faster, more reliable and more secure than existing paper-based method of transferring patient records. This means your new practice will have your full and detailed medical record available in time for your very first appointment.
