- Referral Management
- Electronic Appointment Booking
- On line Booking of repeat prescriptions
- Summary Care Record
- GP2GP transfers
- Patient Access to records.

Please find below details of Haddenham Medical Centre stance with regards to these developments:-
- Referral management
All practices must include the NHS Number as the primary identifier in all NHS clinical correspondence issued by the practice. We include the NHS number in all our referral correspondence.
- Electronic appointment booking
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for all patients, who wish to, to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online.
We currently offer the facility for booking and cancelling appointments on- line. Please visit www.haddenham.org to register for on line services or come into the practice.
- Online booking of repeat prescriptions
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for all patients, who wish to, to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for necessary drugs, medicines or appliances.
We currently offer the facility for ordering repeat prescriptions on-line. Please visit www.haddenham.org to register for on line services or come into the practice and request access to order your repeat medication online.
- Interoperable records/Summary Care Record.
Practices are required to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to a patient’s summary information, at least on a daily basis to the Summary Care record.
Having your Summary Care Record available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.
Haddenham Medical Centre is already live with SCR. However, if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way and have not already informed the practice then you will need to let us know so that we can update your record. You can do this via the ‘opt out form’ available at reception.
Please visit http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/scr for more information.
- GP2GP record transfers
There is a requirement for GP Practices to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers.
It is very important that you are registered with a doctor at all times. If you leave your GP and register with a new GP, your medical records will be removed from your previous doctor and forwarded on to your new GP via NHS England. With GP2GP, your electronic record is transferred to your new practice is within 24hrs.
Haddenham Medical Centre confirms that GP2GP transfers are already active and we send and receive patient records via this system.
