A Summary Care Record is an electronic record containing key health information, which can be made available to NHS healthcare staff caring for you in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.
You do not need to do anything and a Summary Care Record will be made for you.
There are two ways to opt out from the Summary Care Record.
Your existing health record at your GP practice will continue to be used as it is now.
Please ask us for a leaflet at reception if you are still unsure about the Summary Care Record which provides more information to help you decide. You can also phone the Summary Care Record information line on 0300 123 3020 or visit the website at systems.hscic.gov.uk/scr
