Your medical records when leaving the practice (GP2GP)

It is very important that you are registered with a doctor near to where you live. We encourage patients to do this as soon as possible if they move out of the practice area. Once you have registered with a new GP, your medical records will be forwarded on to them via NHS England.

NHS England requires all practices to use electronic transfer of patient records (GP2GP) between practices when a patient registers or de-registers from our Practice or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31 st   of March 2015.

Belmont Medical Centre already uses GP2GP to transfer patient records electronically, unless there is an issue with the receiving practice’s computer system that does not allow the transfer. This means that your electronic medical record will be available to your new GP as soon as they register you at the practice.
