Summary Care Records

Your 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

More information is available from Here.

Confidentiality

Anything that you discuss with any member of the Practice Team will remain confidential. The only circumstances under which we might consider passing on confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm and in these cases we would always try to discuss this with you first.

To release information to a third party, insurance company, solicitor or other organisations we require that you sign and date a consent form for disclosure. In most instances a template will be provided by the organisation however we are happy to accept a handwritten, signed and dated letter from the patient. In some cases patients might want another individual or family member to have access to medical records; again in this case, explicit instructions are required from the patient in order to carry out their wishes.

Your Health and Care Records

What is patient information?

When you visit an NHS or social care service, information about you and the care you receive is recorded and stored in a health and care record. This is so that people caring for you can make the best decisions about your care. 

Find out about the types of records and how to access them.

The information in your records can include your:

  • name, age and address
  • health conditions
  • treatments and medicines
  • allergies and past reactions to medications
  • tests, scans and x-ray results
  • lifestyle information, such as whether you smoke or drink
  • hospital admission and discharge information
