GP2GP Transfer of Electronic Health Records (England)

When a patient registers with a new practice for primary health care GP2GP enables the transfer of the electronic component of a general practice patient record from the old practice to the new.

In order for a GP2GP transfer to occur:

  • Both practices must be enabled for GP2GP , and
  • A user must be signed on using the Smartcard (SSO) before registering the new patient.

There are a series of messages that pass between the practices, from the initial request, through to the fulfilment with the records being sent.

Regional GP2GP user guides are available for download from the Knowledge Base.
