Summary Care Record

Your Summary Care Record (SCR) is a short summary of your GP medical records. It tells other health and care staff who care for you about the medicines you take and your allergies.

For more information, visit:
 NHS Digital - SCR - Information For Patients

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

The information held in your Summary Care Record gives health and care professionals, away from your usual GP practice, access to information to provide you with safer care, reduce the risk of prescribing errors and improve your patient experience.

Your Summary Care Record contains basic information about allergies and medications and any reactions that you have had to medication in the past.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

All patients registered with a GP have a Summary Care Record, unless they have chosen not to have one.

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it to the Practice. The form can be found at: Summary Care Record Opt Out Form

Notts Care Record

All health and care providers across Nottinghamshire hold individual paper and electronic records about you. This may mean that your information may not be available when and where you need it to be, and you may end up repeating yourself when treated by different services.

The Notts Care Record is a secure and confidential system that will enable the viewing of information about your health and care so that information is available to the right health and care staff at the right time to support the delivery of your care. Having a more joined up and coordinated record will improve the way information about you is shared in order to deliver better care and make decisions more effectively.

The Notts Care Record is a collaboration between GP, hospital, community, mental health and social care services across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Your Data Matters to the NHS

Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.

How your data is used

Information about your individual care such as treatment and diagnoses is collected about you whenever you use health and care services. It is also used to help us and other organisations for research and planning such as research into new treatments, deciding where to put GP clinics and planning for the number of doctors and nurses in your local hospital.  It is only used in this way when there is a clear legal basis to use the information to help improve health and care for you, your family and future generations.

Wherever possible we try to use data that does not identify you, but sometimes it is necessary to use your confidential patient information.

You have a choice

You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your information is used. If you do not want your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you can choose to opt out securely online or through a telephone service. You can change your mind about your choice at any time.

Will choosing this opt-out affect your care and treatment?

No, choosing to opt out will not affect how information is used to support your care and treatment. You will still be invited for screening services, such as screenings for bowel cancer.

What do you need to do?

If you are happy for your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you do not need to do anything.
