Summary Care Record

Summary Care Records have been introduced in this practice. A Summary Care Record is an electronic record containing a summary of your Medications, Allergies and Adverse Reactions, which can be made available to NHS healthcare staff caring for you in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.

If you would like a Summary Care Record you need take no further action, one will be created for you.

If you do not want a Summary Care Record you must complete an Opt Out form and return it to the surgery. Opt Out forms are available from Reception or you can download one from our ‘Downloads’ section on the website.

If you would like more information – There is an information letter in the ‘Downloads’ section of our website or you may ask for a leaflet at reception. You can also phone the Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020
