The aim of the materials is to help practices fulfill the IT requirements of the 2014/15 GP contract by March 2015. These are:
- online appointment booking
- online ordering of repeat prescriptions
- online access to the summary information from the patient record
The interactive toolkit provides guidance to practices on getting started with records access, identity verification, coercion and proxy access. The toolkit is a work in progress and updates to the guidance and more resources will be added through the rest of 2014/15. The guidance and suggested actions for practices are therefore subject to change.
Please direct any comments or concerns to the LMC secretariat via email or by posting here. Views will be fed back to the GPC who are contributing to the development of this resource.
NHS England is also inviting feedback and questions from practices on the Patient Online programme and toollkit. These can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
