Helping practices transfer electronic patient records when a patient moves practice, using the GP2GP transfer process.

GP2GP is a process that allows electronic patient records (EPR) to be transferred between practices when a patient moves practice. This reduces the level of data entry in the new practice, saving time and effort and improving quality.

The GP2GP transfer process has been designed to help practices transfer electronic and scanned information only. Paper medical records should still be managed and processed using the existing channels. GP2GP has been designed around the existing Docman Transfer process currently available at all practices.
