General practices hold copies of your patient health records electronically and in paper format. GP2GP is the technology that transfers your electronic health record directly and securely from your previous GP when you register at this practice. The London Lane Clinic has been using the GP2GP system for a number of years. However, the transfer will happen only if your old practice used the GP2GP system as well. All the clinical information from your old practice will be transferred on the same day as your registration is processed. Your paper medical record is also transferred, but this can take between 6-8 weeks.
