Summary Care Record

Your Summary Care Record (SCR) contains information from your health record such as your current prescription details, allergies and any bad reactions to medication you have had in the past. It will also include your name, address, date of birth and your unique NHS Number to help identify you correctly.

In providing care to you, we would like to view your Summary Care Record in order to provide the best possible care for you from the most up to date information available. Whenever your record is accessed, the details will be recorded should you wish to question this at any point in the future. You can change this permission at any point just by contacting us.

You can opt-out of having an SCR altogether and you should contact your GP practice who will record this, if this is your preference.
