Summary Care Record

Summary Care Record (SCR)

You will have an SCR, which will be available to people providing you with care anywhere in England. At first, your SCR will contain important information about your health, such as details of any allergies, your current prescriptions and whether you have had any bad reactions to medicines.

After that, each time you use any NHS health service, we may add details about any health problems, summaries of your care and the professionals treating you to your SCR. As we add new information to your record, you can discuss what is being added and how sensitive information is handled.

If you choose to have an SCR, NHS staff will ask you if they can look at it every time they need to. If you do not want us to make an SCR for you, you can choose not to have one.
