Your Summary Care Record (SCR) is a short summary of your GP medical records. It tells other healthcare staff about the medicines you take, and your allergies. As the SCR is an electronic record, it gives healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information about you; to help provide you with safe treatment when you need to access care, either in an emergency or when your GP surgery is closed. Healthcare staff will ask for your permission every time they need to look at your SCR. You can add more information to your SCR by completing the form below. The SCR is done automatically, if you choose not to have one, ask our Care Navigators for an opt-out form.
If you have any questions, please speak to one of our Care Navigators who will be happy to help.
