The Summary Care Record is a copy of key information from your GP record. The Summary Care Record provides authorised care professionals working elsewhere in the NHS with faster, secure access to essential information about you when you need care.
All patients will have a core Summary Care Record unless they have previously informed their GP practice that they didn’t want one. A core Summary Care Record includes details of the medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had in the past.
We would now like to offer you the opportunity to allow additional information to be added to your Summary Care Record including significant medical history, illness and operations (past and present), reasons for medications, and care plan information (if any).
If you would like to have an SCR with Additional Information, or if you don’t want an SCR at all, please contact the surgery on 01424 720878.
