Summary Care Record

Summary Care Records (SCR) are an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. They can be seen and used by authorised staff in other areas of the health and care system involved in the patient's direct care

To help the NHS to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, additional information will be included in Summary Care Records for patients by default, unless you have previously told the NHS that you did not want this information to be shared

If you are registered with a GP practice in England your SCR is created automatically, unless you have opted out. 98% of practices are now using the system.

You can talk to us about opting out of including additional information to do with long-term conditions, care preferences or specific communications needs.
