|Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan, with all general practices being required to be in a network. This practice is part of the Bromley Connect Primary Care Network.Bromley Connect PCN is made up of a number GP Practices created to work collaboratively to ensure the health care system within our area works effectively by sharing knowledge and resources.
In developing the Bromley Connect PCN Extended Access Service the following key principles have been considered and addressed:
To enable us to provide our Enhanced Access Service to you, GPs from other local practices will at times have access to your full GP record but only when providing direct care to you.
Clinicians will have the ability to view your GP record at your registered practice and add in your consultation/appointment notes back into your record at your registered practice. This is to support your provision of care.
People who have access to your information will only normally have access to that which they need to fulfil their roles, for instance admin staff will normally only see your name, address, contact details, appointment history and registration details in order to book appointments, the practice nurses will normally have access to your immunisation, treatment, significant active and important past histories, your allergies and relevant recent contacts whilst the GP you see or speak to will normally have access to everything in your record.
