Summary Care Record

SUMMARY CARE RECORDS

As part of our nationalrequirements the practice is enabled to allow the Summary Care Record toelectronically link from the practice patient records to the national spine ona daily basis.

 

This information isaccessible by healthcare staff who are providing urgent and emergency care inother healthcare settings.

 

The informationrecorded in the summary care record is:

- patientidentification

- medication

- allergies and adversedrug reactions

 

Patients can opt out ofsummary care record data at any time.

 

GP 2 GP

 

In addition, thepractice is also enabled to receive electronic patients records of a patientjoining the practice before the paper records arrive.

 

It will also forwardelectronic records of a patient who is leaving the practice to their newsurgery.

 

This does not replacethe sending of paper records - this will still occur - but is should ensureinformation is received sooner than before.

 

The practice plans tohave this system fully functional by March 2015.


There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information 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 healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

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 foot of this page.
