Summary Care Record
The Summary Care Record (SCR) is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from, any reactions to medicines you have had, details of the management of long-term conditions, medications, immunisations, care plan information and significant medical history, past and present. It is held on a national database by NHS England. SCR may be shared with other healthcare professionals and organisations involved with your care. These professionals and organisations may also be able to update the record in order to ensure you are provided with the best possible care.
You can opt out of having an SCR, or exclude certain information being shared via the SCR by filling in the form on the NHS Website.
Further information about the SCR can be found on the NHS Website.
