Medefer GP Referral System
The GP Referral System is a means by which GPs send referrals to Consultants which are then answered within 48 hours, outside of the normal working process of NHS clinics. Careful planning of the architecture was required to conform to NHS criteria as the system handles patient identifiable data but needs to be able to access both the NHS N3 network and the outward facing internet. It also needed to be compatible with the different methods used by different GPs to write their letters. Access is only granted via two-tier authentication and data is encrypted at rest as well as when in transit.
