Launching revolutionary integration with GP Connect
The key benefits of the integration with GP Connect is thatour nurses now have access to real time informationas well as a clear picture of historic care for our residents.The vast amount of time savedby having instantaneous accessibility is beneficial for not only our nurses but for GPs too as we no longer need to call GPs for updates or information.

What is needed to access GP Connect?
You need to sign the “NHS GP Connect HTML product data sharing” Data Share Agreement in the Digital Care System
The GP Connect view can only be used to access data for residents under your direct care
The GP Connect service is only available to care homes in England
We feel extremely privileged to be amongst the first to use the integration and the feedback we’ve received from nursing staff so far has been brilliant. By logging into the system, staff can now see all relevant medical records related to residents and without having to chase individual GP surgeries.
The time-saving benefits to our staff are going to be huge, and the system will also improve our knowledge base of the individuals we care for. We’re thrilled to be one of the first care homes in the country to use the integration and we look forward to it becoming part of our everyday lives.
