Patients registering with a GP currently have to wait 2 weeks plus for their records to be transfered to their new GP.
For patients who are moving from one Welsh practice to another this will be done electronically in future, therefore speeding up the process greatly (typically records transferred within 1 hour).
This enables your new GP practice to have a medical history ready when you first need to see a doctor.
Because of this change we will need to ask new patients previously registered in the NHS to obtain their NHS NUMBER from their last GP to acurately identify themselves before we request the records.
