Summary Care Record

When you register with us we will ask you to sign a form giving consent for us to share your medical information in respect of your care or treatment. Any other person you authorise to see your information would have to be named on this form.

Summary care records (SCRs) are held on a national system know as ‘the spine’, though this only contains basic demographic, medication and allergy information. Unless you have opted out of ‘the spine’, your SCR is available to all NHS providers. However, your verbal consent is required before anyone can access your SCR.

If you wish to opt out of the Summary Care Record scheme please complete our online opt out form.
