A Summary Care Record will contain three important pieces of medical information about you:
· any medication you are taking
· any allergies you suffer from
· any bad reactions to medication you have had
It will also include your:
· Date of Birth
· NHS number
We believe it is important that this information is made available to any healthcare staff caring for you in an emergency or when the surgery is closed.
This is why we will be joining in with the procedure to transfer the information detailed above into a Summary Care Record for each of our patients on the 31st January 2013.
Further information can be found at:
This will enable you to download the Patient Leaflet giving further information and also watch a short video.
You can also pick up a NHS Summary Care Record from the surgery.
If you do not wish to have a Summary Care Record created for you/your children then you will need to complete an Opt Out Form and return it to the surgery.
This can be found at the back of the Patient Leaflet, by choosing the “Opting Out” section at the above website link or by downloading the form from the link below.
NB – Patients who completed an opt out form a few years ago when this was first announced will continue to be considered as opting out of this procedure.
