This is for 2 full time GP, 1 part time GP and 2 locums who worked in the practice for more than six moths.

Summary Care Record

We (the NHS in England) are introducing a new electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR), which will be used to support your emergency care.

This is being introduced to improve the safety and quality of patient care. It will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information about you, to help provide you with safe treatment when you need care in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.

We are telling you before a Summary Care Record will be made for you so that you have time to think about your choices. You will receive a letter informing you about the creation of the Summary Care Record. 

You can choose to have a Summary Care Record:
You do not need to do anything, this will happen automatically.

You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record:
You need to let your GP practice know by filling in and returning an opt-out form that you receive with your letter.
