NHS Summary Care Record

 

The NHS is introducing nationally a new electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR), which will be used to support your emergency care.

The Summary Care Record is being introduced to improve the safety and quality of patient care.  Because the SCR is an electronic record it will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information about  you, to help provide you with safe treatment when you need care in an emergency or when your GP Practice is closed. 

Over 60% of GP Surgeries in England have already implemented this and 64% of patients nationally now have a Summary Care Record.

We are working with our local IT Projects Team to enable Summary Care Records by the end of March 2015.

We are telling you about this before a SCR is made for you so that you have time to think about your choices:

·         You can choose to have a Summary Care Record.   In this case you do not need to do anything as it will happen automatically.  Healthcare staff will ask your permission every time they look at your SCR.

 

·         You can choose NOT to have a Summary Care Record.   If you don't wan't a SCR you need to let the Practice know by completing an Opt-out form which will be available. 

 

You can change your mind at anytime about whether or not you want to have a Summary Care Record as long as you let us know

Children will automatically have a Summary Care Record made for them unless their parents or guardians complete an opt-out form on their behalf.

If you have any further queries please contact the Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020 .  Or alternatively visit their website  'Summary Care Records'
