Coronavirus (COVID-19) response: Additional Information is included in your SCR
To help the NHS to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Additional Information will be included in Summary Care Records for patients by default, unless you have previously told the NHS that you did not want this information to be shared.
If you are registered with a GP practice in England, you will already have a Summary Care Record (SCR), unless you have previously chosen not to have one. It will contain key information about the medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any adverse reactions to medicines you have had in the past.
Information about your healthcare may not be routinely shared across different healthcare organisations and systems. You may need to be treated by health and care professionals who do not know your medical history. Essential details about your healthcare can be difficult to remember, particularly when you are unwell or have complex care needs.
Having a Summary Care Record can help by providing healthcare staff treating you with vital information from your health record. This will help the staff involved in your care make better and safer decisions about how best to treat you.
You have the choice of what information you would like to share and with whom. Authorised healthcare staff can only view your SCR with your permission. The information shared will solely be used for the benefit of your care.
Your options are outlined below:
If you are new to the Practice, a Summary Care Record Consent form can be found in your Registration Pack. For existing patients, please use this consent form. If you chose not to complete a consent form, a core Summary Care Record (SCR) will be created for you, which will contain only medications, allergies and adverse reactions. Please note, you are free to change your decision at any time by informing your GP practice.
