Summary Care Records
Important information regarding your NHS medical records
The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care situations.
The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from, and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely. This information will be available to authorised health care staff providing your care anywhere in England.
We recommend that you read the information available from the NHS by visiting NHS Digital Summary Care Records (SCR) or by telephoning the helpline on 0300 123 3020.
Your decision is required when registering with Northumberland Park Medical Group.
