Share Your Health Record

If you are registered with a GP practice in England you will have a Summary Care Record (SCR), unless you have previously chosen not to have one. It includes important information about your health, what medicines you are taking, the allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions you have had to medicines. You may need to be treated by health and care professionals that do not know your medical history. Having an SCR means that when you need healthcare you can be helped to recall vital information. SCRs can help the staff involved in your care make better and safer decisions about how best to treat you. You can choose to have additional information included in your SCR, which can enhance the care you receive. This information includes your illnesses and health problems, any operations, vaccinations you have had in the past, what support you might need and how should be contacted for more information about you.
