This guide is intended for GPs, general practice staff, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and commissioning support units (CSUs) who are providing support to GP practices implementing Patient Online. Designed to provide practices with the information they need to get their patients online, there are a range of resources including practical tools, checklists, forms and sample policies, materials for patients and the answers to frequently asked questions.
The Road Map has been produced by the RCGP to support and inform GPs and their practices during this time of change, to act as a stimulus for commissioning groups to consider how they could best support their practices and/or groups of federated practices and to assist patient participation groups (PPG) in supporting their practices, and help patient organisations to tailor their provision and delivery of health information.
This guidance sets out patient rights to records access, the potential benefits, and the legal background. It provides advice on preparing to provide records access and on good practice in recording information within the record.
This guide is aimed at practitioners, managers and patient organisations in health and social care in the UK and brings together the perspectives of policy makers, clinicians, suppliers and patients themselves.
This document provides an an overview and quick guide to providing patients with online access to their records, helping GPs to gain confidence in the process. It sets out key areas for consideration, such as governance and suggests ways of managing the risks. It is a summary of a more detailed report produced by the RCGP, Enabling patients to access electronic health records: guidance for health professionals.
