Summary Care Records (SCR)


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, for instance if you were rushed to A&E.


The Witterings Medical Centre is now ‘live’ with Summary Care Records. If you wish to ‘opt out’ of this please let us know in writing.


More information on SCR can be found on the following website: www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk    


It is important to realise that sharing your data through summary care records (SCR) is totally different from the Care Data initiative which has been talked about in the press . It is advised that patients read up on both of these before making an informed decision. Care data links can be found below.
