Summary Care Records

Summary care records are a system allowing Doctors in hospitals to access limited information about, if they are involved in your care, such as:

  • Medication you are on
  • any allergies you may have
  • medications you have a reaction to

This information would be accessed only with your permission, unless you were say unconscious or otherwise unable to communicate.

If for some reason you do NOT wish to be included in this system (but have not already opted out) you should complete a Summary Care Record Opt Out Form and return it to the surgery.
