Summary Care Record

The SCR enables healthcare staff providing care for patients in an emergency and from anywhere in England, to be made aware of any current medications or allergies they may suffer from. This information is sent electronically up to the Spine in order for this to happen. If patients wish their information to be withheld from the SCR they can “opt out”. Please ask at reception for the SCR Opt Out Form or download one at: NHS Care Records .Patients can also opt into the enriched Summary Care Record.
