Summary Care Record

Summary Care Record (SCR)

The Summary Care Record (SCR) system is designed to help both your GP and any emergency staff you contact when the surgery is closed to treat your health needs more efficiently.

Your information will be shared between your GP practice, our local hospital and Out Of Hours service. This will enable your GP surgery to access results and any visits you have at the hospital quickly and efficiently, but it also means that if you have an emergency and contact the Out Of Hours service or visit A&E they will have access to your current medications as well as allergies and are better able to treat you.

If you do not return this form, a Summary Care Record will be created for you based on implied consent

Dear Patient,

There are currently three different data sharing schemes running nationally; Local Data Sharing, the Summary Care Record and NHS Digital Data and Information Collection data sets.

It is important that patients know the difference between Local Data Sharing, the Summary Care Record and NHS Digital Data and Information Collection data sets, so that an informed choice can be made about whether you are happy for your data to be shared, or whether you wish to opt out.

We want to be sure that we give you the opportunity to decide at what level you would like to opt out of data sharing and are aware of the implications.

You can also opt out of receiving text messages from the surgery. The surgery sends texts relating to your appointments, health reminders or campaigns. Please ensure we have your correct mobile number if you want to receive these texts.

Please complete the attached form and return it to us so we can be clear about your wishes.

A data sharing agreement exists between other clinical services that we refer you to. There are local services that are run as a federation of practices; caring for patients and providing cover Monday to Sunday 8-8 at the Hub.

If a patient does not opt out, their information will be shared when immediate patient care is needed.

A Summary Care Record is an electronic record that is stored at a central location. It contains information about medicines, allergies, or reactions to medicines that a patient has had. The record does not include detailed information about a patient’s medical history. Only healthcare staff directly involved in the patient’s care who have access to this information. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat patients in an emergency. The information being shared could be critical in an emergency situation. If a patient does not opt out, they will automatically have a Summary Care Record; however a patient can opt out of or re-join the scheme at any time.

The NHS would like to link information from all the different places where patients receive care, to help them compare the care patients receive in one area against another, so they can see what has worked best. Information such as a patient’s postcode and NHS number, but not their name, will be used to link their records in a secure system, so their identity is protected. Information which does not reveal their identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure the NHS provide the best care possible for everyone. How patient information is used and shared is controlled by law and strict rules are in place to protect patient privacy. If a patient does not opt out, their information will be shared; however a patient can opt out of or re-join the scheme at any time.

Online services information

If you wish to, you can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly and look at your medical record online. You can also still use the telephone or call in to the surgery for any enquiry.

It will be your responsibility to keep your login details and password safe and secure. If you know or suspect that your record has been accessed by someone that you have not agreed should see it, then you should change your password immediately. 

If you can't do this for some reason, we recommend that you contact the practice so that they can remove online access until you are able to reset your password. 

If you print out any information from your record, it is also your responsibility to keep this secure. If you are at all worried about keeping printed copies safe, we recommend that you do not make copies at all. 

Although the chances of any of these things happening are very small, you will be asked that you have read and understood the following before you are given login details. 

  • Forgotten history: There may be something you have forgotten about in your record that you might find upsetting.
  • Abnormal results or bad news: If your GP has given you access to test results or letters, you may see something that you find upsetting to you. This may occur before you have spoken to your doctor or while the surgery is closed and you cannot contact them.
  • Choosing to share your information with someone: It's up to youwheter or not you share your information with others - perhaps family members or carers. It's your choice, but also your responsibility to keep the informationsafe and secure. 
  • Coersion: If you think you may be pressured into revealing details from your patient record to someone else against your will, it is best that you do not register for access at this time. 
  • Misunderstood information: Your medical record is designed to be used by clinical professionals to ensure that you receive the best possible care. Some of the information within your medical record may be highly technical, written by specialists and not easily understood. If you require further clarification, please contact the surgery for a cleaer explanation.
  • Information about someone else: If you spot something in the record that is not about you or notice any other erros, please log out of the system immediately and contact the practice as soon as possible.
