Summary Care Record
There are strict laws and regulations to ensure that your health records are kept confidential and can only be accessed by health professionals directly involved in your care. There is some sharing of information as detailed below. You can opt out of any of these at any time if you wish.
NHS Summary Care Record (SCR)
- this 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. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
If you need more time to make your choice you should let your GP Practice know.
For more information talk to the Patient Experience Team on 0800 2792535 or CAPCCG.email@example.com, visit the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Integrated Care System website
, telephone the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020, or visit their website
, or contact your GP practice staff.
You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record and you can change your mind at any time by informing staff at The Hicks Group Practice.
If you do nothing we will assume that you are happy with these changes and create a Summary Care Record for you.
