NHS England - List Maintenance Project 2015
Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one
The NHS is carrying out work in Bath, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all. If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by Freephone, via text message or online. Changes can also be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope
It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do become out of date over time. If we don’t have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.
We may also need to contact you:
- with test results
- to invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer, for example
- to offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella
- to give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long-term illness
Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHS can be certain about your details. If you do not respond, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.

Welcome to the Yorkleigh internet notice board. Here you will find current up to date information about the practice, it's services, opening times etc. Please let us have feedback or suggestions.
For all patients using the Vision Online Service (VOS).
Some patients registered for VOS have been receiving email reminders about non-existent appointments! They may have had a phone call booked or we have passed a message over to a clinician and the system sees this as an appointment and duly sends an email reminder.
Because of the confusion this has caused we have switched off the email reminder facility, therefore we would like to send more appointment reminders by text. We will need an up to date mobile phone number so please make sure we have your details correct and that you have given permission to receive texts from us.

IT/ELECTRONIC PATIENT RECORDS
STATEMENT OF INTENT FOR YORKLEIGH SURGERY
New contractual requirements came into force from 1st April 2014 requiring that GP practices should make available a statement of intent in relation to the following IT developments:-
1. Referral Management
2. Electronic Appointment Booking
3. On line Booking of repeat prescriptions
4. Summary Care Record
5. GP2GP transfers
6. Patient Access to records.
Please find below details of the practice stance with regards to these developments:-
All practices must include the NHS Number as the primary identifier in all NHS clinical correspondence issued by the practice.
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for all patients, who wish to, to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online.
We currently offer the facility for booking and cancelling appointments on- line.
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for all patients, who wish to, to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for necessary drugs, medicines or appliances.
We currently offer the facility for ordering repeat prescriptions on-line.
Practices are required to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to a patient’s summary information, at least on a daily basis to the Summary Care record.
Having your Summary Care Record 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.
Dr McKenzie and Partners is already live with SCR. However, 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. You can do this via the ‘opt out form’ or on our website.
There is a contractual requirement to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers.
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 several weeks for your paper records to reach your new surgery. With GP to GP record transfers, your electronic record is transferred to your new practice much sooner.
Dr McKenzie and Partners confirm that GP2GP transfers are already active and we send and receive patient records via this system.
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print any summary of information from their records relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items/date such as ‘additional’ record elements which has been agreed between the contractor and the patient.
We are working with our system supplier and it is our intention to have this facility available to patients by 31st March 2015
UPDATE - Yorkleigh Surgery NOW OFFER to our patients all of the requirements under the new GP contract relating to IT developments and are working closely with our Clinical Stsyem Suppliers to allow patients to access the detailed information from their medical record. It is our intention to have this development available to our patients by 31st March 2016.
