Important Information for Patients
Summary Care Record (professional healthcare use only)
A Summary Care Record is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any adverse reactions to medicines you have had.
Having this information stored in one place makes it much easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when the surgery closed.
This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe.
Only healthcare staff involved in your care will be able to see your Summary Care Record.
You will always be asked before anyone accesses your record.
If you wish to opt out of this service please let reception know – but please bear in mind that information is only ever shared between healthcare professionals for your benefit.
