Summary Care Records

Practices are required to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to a patient’s summary information, at least on a daily basis to the Summary Care record (SCR).

Having your Summary Care Record 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.

Royal Crescent Surgery is already live with SCR. However, 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.  You can do this by completing the Summary Care Record – Opt Out Form. This form should then be returned to the surgery so that your record can be updated.
