Important Information about your Health Records

NHS England are now able to automatically extract personally identifiable information about you from our computer system, using its powers under the Health and Social Care Act 2012. At the end of January 2014 all households in England will receive an information leaflet called "Better information means better care". Please read the leaflet carefully. If you have not received the leaflet you can read it here.

If you do not want your details to be extracted, complete one of the opt out forms which can be obtained from Reception or downloaded from the Care Data page. Please note Patients who have opted out of the Summary Care Record (SCR) will still need to complete an opt out form.

 

 

 

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
