Your Summary Care Record (SCR) is a new way of caring for you in an emergency. The SCR is an electronic copy of information from us. Your SCR has only the most important information about your health like; medicines you take, allergies you have and any medicines that make you ill. If you need further information please do not hesitate to contact us. Please advise your family and friends.
The Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) part of NHS England, will start to extract confidential information from your medical records that can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you. If you need further information please do not hesitate to contact us. Please advise your family and friends.
