Summary Care Record

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System colled the Summary Care Record (SCR).  It is an electronic record which contains informtaion about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information  in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healtthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record.

How do I know if I have one?

Over half the population of England now have a Summary Care Record.  Patients registered with the practice will automatically have a Summary Care Record, unless they have opted out.

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory.  If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery.  You can use the form at the foor of this page.
