Skills for Care Masterclass: Using LinkedIn to boost your recruitment and retention
Date: Tuesday 5 July 2022
Press release from The Digitising Social Care programme, which is part of a joint Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England and Improvement unit within the NHS Transformation Directorate.
Access to GP Connect is currently available to clinicians in a number of CQC-registered care provider settings across England. It means that clinically-qualified staff are able to see a patient’s full GP record when making decisions about their care.
We’re now expanding access to GP Connect in adult social care settings in order to allow non-clinical staff to view a filtered summary of a person’s GP record. The primary aim of this work is to support staff in delivering care safely by ensuring they have the most up to date information to hand.
Having filtered access to GP Connect in a care home setting means that staff will be able to see information about allergies and adverse reactions, medications and immunisations for the person they are caring for. They will also be able to read notes on a resident’s last three encounters with their GP.
Our primary concern has been to keep patient safety and confidentiality at the forefront of our work and this latest development to GP Connect functionality was undertaken in close consultation with both the National Data Guardian and Information Commissioner. The result is an appropriate robust solution that complies with information governance good and safe practice.
The filtered view of GP Connect is currently being rolled out to an initial cohort of 400 registered CQC providers. Once this initial rollout is complete we will look to extend its implementation to more providers as part of an overall approach to the digitalisation of the adult social care sector.
