P2GP: the Electronic Transfer of Patient Records
Statement of Intent
By the end of March 2015 all GP practices in England will able to send computer held patient records electronically to a patient's new surgery so they arrive much quicker than the paper notes. This is called the GP2GP electronic transfer of patient records. The paper notes will continue to be sent by an NHS delivery service.
With GP2GP, your medical record is available to your new doctor within a few minutes of registration, enabling much safer care.
We enabled this service in December.
