CEP Registration DEMO

The Central European Practice (CEP) works in close partnership with OneHMG Healix to support those living in EJSU areas who fall under the care of local healthcare providers and do not have access to a UK Medical Centre. Registration with the CEP is an important element of ensuring that we are able to optimise management of your healthcare needs during your time overseas.

Service Personnel

Registration with the CEP is mandatory for Service Personnel and your medical record will be transferred over from your previous DPHC Practice to the CEP electronically through DMICP once you have registered with us. This enables the CEP to monitor and respond to any Occupational Health requirements in addition to medical needs.

Civil Servants and Dependants

For Civil Servants and dependants registration with the CEP whilst not currently mandatory is strongly encouraged. NHS General Practice providers work on a residency basis and therefore whilst you are resident overseas holding of your record should be transferred to the UK Practice responsible for your area – in this case the CEP. Registering with the CEP enables us to hold and manage your NHS GP record to ensure there are not gaps in your medical history whilst overseas, provide informed and safe clinical reach back/forward telemedicine when required, contribute in an informed manner to shared clinical decision making with Healix on individualised treatment pathways, and closely monitor and advise on any longer term healthcare monitoring and requirements. Registering with the CEP does not mean that you will lose access to NHS services whilst you are overseas – this can be achieved either through referral to specific services via Healix or through temporary NHS GP registration as required during periods when you are staying in the UK, during holidays for example.

Registration

Registration. The registration form should be completed as soon after your arrival at your new posting or location as possible. Following submission of the form, and within two weeks, you will receive a call or email from a member of the CEP who will welcome you to the Practice, confirm any outstanding information that is required, and talk you through what the Practice can offer you including answering any queries you may have.

De-Registration

De-Registration. The de-registration form should be completed in your final week in posting/location – it is not advised to do this before then in case you have any unanticipated healthcare needs during your last days in post. Once your form has been received you will receive confirmation of de-registration by email or phone from the CEP. Should we have any queries regarding any aspects of your care than need to be transferred to your new Practice one of the clinical team will be in touch before we activate the de-registration.

The CEP understands that registration processes can often be complex and at risk of duplication of information already given. We are committed to making registration and de-registration processes for our Practice as quick and simple as possible and will endeavour to ask only for the minimal information required to ensure safe and accurate transfer of care. We do this by, where available and consented, making use of information that you have already given to DPHC or Healix during your pre-deployment preparation. We then top this us with additional required information on an individualised and bespoke basis. Of information that you do give us the Defence Primary Healthcare patient privacy notice lets you know what happens to your personal data and explains how we collect and process this to meet our obligations to you. The personal data we collect about you may also be provided to other approved organisations, where there is a legal basis, to help with improving the care provided, research into new treatments and preventing illness. These help to provide better health and care for you, your family and future generations. Personal data about your health and care is only used in this way where allowed by law and would never be used for insurance or marketing purposes without your explicit consent. You have a choice about whether you want your personal data to be used in this way, visit www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters . If you do choose to opt out, you can still consent to your personal data being used for specific purposes.

Should you have any queries regarding registration with the CEP please do not hesitate to contact us on ukstratcom-dms-dphc-ejsu-cepgrp@mod.gov.uk 0032 6544 2280
