Summary Care Record Opt Out Form
Your medical record and you- Statement of Intent
It is important that your medical record is available when and where you need it.
You may feel, especially if you have an extensive medical history, that it is very important for some of your medical information to be available if you were on holiday away from the practice area and /or taken ill and ended up in hospital. Having your Summary Care Record (SCR) available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.
Your SCR is automatically updated on at least a daily basis to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can possibly be.
Of course if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way then you will need to let us know so that we can update your record.
Your medical records when leaving the practice.
It is very important that you are registered with a doctor near to where you live. We encourage patients to do this as soon as possible if they move out of the practice area. Once you have re registered with a new GP, your medical records will be forwarded on to them via NHS England.
