Summary Care Record
This practice makes use of the new Summary Care Record. A Summary Care Record is an electronic record, which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
More information on the Summary Care Record can be seen at: http://www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk
Patients opting out of sharing personal data
Patients may be aware that medical data is shared amongst Primary and Secondary Care,in order to provide care for our patients. For example when we refer you to hospital to see a consultant, we send a letter detailing your pertinent medical history. Patients have an opportunity to opt out of what data is shared and with whom.
