Transferring Your Electronic Health Record (GP2GP)

Your GP Practice holds copies of your patient health record both electronically and in paper format. Your medical record starts on the day you were born and includes your medical history, medication, allergies and vaccinations.

If you have previously been registered with another GP in England, upon registering at our Practice your health record will be transferred automatically from your previous Practice. Where possible this will be done electronically through the use of an NHS system called GP2GP. GP2GP transfers benefit from being faster, more reliable and more secure. Your new GP will review all your regular medications before authorising a repeat prescription. Your paper medical record will also be automatically transferred however this could take around six to eight weeks.

If you would like to be able to view your health record online, please ask a member of staff for further information.
