Summary Care Record (SCR)
What is a Summary Care Record?
A Summary Care Record 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. This means they can give you better care if you need health care away from your usual doctor's surgery:
- in an emergency
- when you're on holiday
- when your surgery is closed
- at out-patient clinics
- when you visit a pharmacy
Additional Information in Summary Care Records
When a patient consents to including additional information in their Summary Care Record, the GP can add it simply by changing the consent status on the clinical system. This means more information will be available to health and care staff viewing the Summary Care Record. It will then be automatically updated when the GP record is updated. This is a quick, cost-effective way to:
- improve the flow of information across the health and care system
- increase safety and efficiency
- improve care
- respond to particular challenges such as winter pressures
It's particularly useful for people with complex or long term conditions, or patients reaching end of life.
