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.
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.
