Leeds first city to fully join up with GP Connect

NHS Digital is ensuring that clinicians have access to patients’ GP records right across Leeds.

The GP Connect service allows GP practices and authorised clinical staff to share and view GP records digitally and allows them to make better decisions about a patient’s care. This means that clinicians in hospitals across the city will be able to access patients’ previous encounters with GPs, improving the data link between the care received at primary and secondary care.

The service is available to all GP practices in Leeds after GP system supplier TPP last month joined EMIS Health in implementing GP Connect.
