Replace proprietary GP viewer (MIG) with open standards NHS Digital alternative GP connect

The GNCR (as many other shared record projects) use the MIG to access GP data. The project was implemented quickly in the region with Trusts working collaboratively to implement the MIG viewer. However, it costs the region around £0.5m pa and isn’t built on reusable standards. It’s served us well, but we want to use GP connect instead but it must be launchable in context from the clinician’s EPR.If we can get a Proof of concept live, we can spread and share around the region and save £0.5m
