SUMMARY CARE RECORD ( posted on Jan 8, 2018 )

 

Unless you have specifically opted out, you are one of the  55,000,000 people in the United Kingdom who has an NHS Summary Care record. This is a nationally accessible medical record which contains information on your current medications (anything you have been prescribed in the last 6 months), any adverse reactions you may have had to any medication and any allergies that you suffer from.

 

It is now possible to Enrich the data stored on this national record with things like diagnoses, procedures, care preferences and immunisations so that more information about you is available to individuals treating you in hospital or in the out of hours service or to paramedics should you be unfortunate enough to have to make use of the ambulance service. 

 

This Enriched Summary Care Record will not contain any sensitive information unless you specifically request for it to be included and is only available to Individuals with the necessary permission codes on their NHS Smart Cards who are directly involved in your care. These individuals also need to obtain your permission to access it. All access of Summary Care Records is audited so if you are concerned about who may have looked at your information, you can request a report from the privacy officer at your GP Surgery on what use has been made of it.

 

Having an Enriched Summary Care Record will lead to you receiving safer, more effective care and will contribute to you having a more positive experience when undergoing treatment. If you would like to take advantage of this service, please ask the receptionists or GP  at the surgery or click here to print form to complete and hand in at the reception desk.
