Statement of Intent - IT/Electronic Patient Records


New contractual requirements came into force from 1 April 2014 requiring that GP practices should make available a statement of intent in relation to the following IT developments:


  1. Summary Care Record (SCR)
  2. GP to GP Record Transfers
  3. Patient Online Access to Their GP Record
  4. Data for commissioning and other secondary care purposes 


The same contractual obligations require that we have a statement of intent regarding these developments in place and publicised by 30 September 2014.

Please find below details of our stance with regards to these developments.

Summary Care Record (SCR)

NHS England require practices to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to patient’s summary information, at least on a daily basis, to the summary care record (SCR) or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31st of March 2015.

Having your Summary Care Record (SCR) available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.

Of course, if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way then you will need to let us know so that we can update your record.

Longroyde Surgery confirms that your SCR is automatically updated on at least a daily basis to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can possibly be.


GP to GP Record Transfers

NHS England require practices to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers (not for temporary registration).

It is very important that you are registered with a doctor at all times. If you leave your GP and register with a new GP, your medical records will be removed from your previous doctor and forwarded on to your new GP via NHS England. It can take your paper records several weeks to reach your new surgery.

With GP to GP record transfers your electronic record is transferred to your new practice much sooner.

Longroyde Surgery confirms that GP to GP transfers are already active and we send and receive patient records via this system.


Patient Online Access to Their GP Record

NHS England require practices to promote and offer the facility to enable patients online access to appointments, prescriptions, allergies and adverse reactions or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31st of March 2015.

We currently offer the facility for booking and cancelling appointments and also for ordering your repeat prescriptions on-line. This is done by the Systm One Online facility. If you do not already have a user name and password for this system please ask at reception.  Longroyde Surgery confirms that we are now able to provide access to the Summary Care Record for patients to view using SystmOnline. Please contact the reception team to request access to your SCR. GP approval is required for all requests. 

 Data for commissioning and other secondary care purposes

It is already a requirement of the Health and Social Care Act that practices must meet the reasonable data requirements of commissioners and other health and social care organisations through appropriate and safe data sharing for secondary uses, as specified in the technical specification for care data.

At Longroyde Surgery we have specific arrangements in place to allow patients to “opt out” of which allows for the removal of data from the practice. Please see the page about on our website.

Longroyde Surgery confirms these arrangements are in place and that we undertake annual training and audits to ensure that all our data is handled correctly and safely via the Information Governance Toolkit.
