Summary Care Records

With effect from 28th November 2011

SCR_logo_small

The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record (SCR), which will be used in emergency care. The record contains information about any medication you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had, to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely. No other information will be included in the SCR.


 
 
 
 
 
The surgery are supporting SCRs and as a patient you have a choice:
  • I WOULD LIKE AN SCR
    You do not need to do anything. The SCR will automatically be created for you.

  • I DO NOT WANT AN SCR
    You need to complete the Opt-Out form (either included in the information pack sent to you in the post or available at the surgery) and hand it to a member of our staff.

  • I WOULD LIKE MORE TIME TO MAKE A DECISION
    If you need more time to make your choice you should let us know as soon as possible. Please note that you can change your mind at any time by informing us of your decision. If you have previously told us that you do not wish to have an SCR, your preference will already have been recorded on your GP Medical Record.

 

A dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line is available for you on 0300 123 3020 or you can visit the website at http://www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk where you can find information in other formats and languages.

For local information you can visit http://www.northamptonshire.nhs.uk/scr.
