You can request EMIS to automatically enable your patients access to their records. This will save you considerable time, as the alternative will be to enable each patient record individually.
There are only 2 sessions remaining in September and October where EMIS are running these ‘bulk enablement’ processes for participating practices. To add your practice to the list, please book a slot as soon as possible.
You can update your system yourself by following this user guide (FutureNHS login required). St Chad’s and Chilcompton Surgery has already used the guide and reported it took about an hour and was easy to follow. Our support team is available to help you.
The updated GP contract requires all practices to provide their patients with online access to new (prospective) health information in their GP records (unless exceptions apply) by 31 October 2023.
The only exceptions are people who have asked to opt out or individuals identified as at risk. This means the application of SNOMED CT exclusion (104) code should only be applied to those individuals.
