NHS England are introducing a new electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR) which will be used to support your emergency care.
The SCR will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information about you. This will help them to provide you with safe treatment in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.
You can choose to have a Summary Care Record:
You do not need to do anything. This 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 do not want an SCR, you need to let us know by filling in and returning an opt-out form to reception.
A printable copy of this form will soon be available below, but in the meantime please come to reception in order to fill one out.
