Summary Care Record (SCR)
This will allow a clinical professional providing emergency care for you elsewhere in the NHS to have access to key information about your electronic medical records i.e medication/allergies/coded information. However, this is optional and you can opt out of this by notifying reception. Unless you are not in the position to give consent i.e. unconscious, consent will be sought before your records are accessed.
Some identifiable information (postcode, NHS No, but not your name) is used for purposes other than direct care, including for research purposes. If you do not wish for your information to be used in this way, please speak to reception.
Access to your medical records
We have a number of data sharing agreements with local NHS providers i.e. Extended Hours Service and Out of Hours Service etc. who will be able to view your electronic medical records. Again you will be asked for your consent every time before your records are viewed, if you wish to opt out please speak to reception.
Please go to https://www.england.nhs.uk/ourwork/tsd/care-data/ for more information on information sharing.
Online Access to Medical Records
You can now gain access to your online medical records where you will be able to view important information ie: Medication/Allergies/Documents/Results and Consultations. This will need to be requested at our front reception with photo ID.
Your access will be granted by the Doctor within one week.
