As a practice we are NOW signed up for the Summary Care Record (SCR). PLEASE DO NOT CONFUSE WITH CARE.DATA.
SCR allows limited patient information to be viewed ONLY by other healthcare professionals, such as ambulance crews or A&E staff. It allows them to access your name, address and NHS number along with your medication, allergies and adverse drug reactions at a time when there is a medical need or urgency. If you are happy for this information to be available you do not need to do anything. As a patient at this practice you have a choice - if you do not wish to have a SCR please request and fill in the SCR opt out form (available at Reception). If you have completed a form at your previous practice it is best to complete another form to ensure this information is on our system.
Children under 16 will automatically have a SCR created for them unless their parent or guardian chooses to opt them out.
You are free to change your mind at any time, just let us know.
