SUMMARY CARE RECORD
From the 31st March 2015 all GP practices were contractually required to offer and promote to patients online booking of appointments, ordering of repeat prescriptions and access to summary information (as a minimum) in their patient record. The Summary Care Record (SCR) is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any adverse (bad) reactions to medicines you have had.
Why do I need a Summary Care Record?
Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.
Who can see it?
GP, Healthcare Professionals and patients who are registered to use our online services.
How do I find out more?
Please speak to our reception staff if you wish to register for the practice’s online service. You will be issued with a unique PIN number which you will need to log in each time.
