Your Summary Care Record

Your Summary Care Record, SCR, is the part of your GP records that can be accessed by emergency doctors and Out of Hours services if you require treatment.  The clinician treating you will always ask permission to access your SCR.  Unless you have specifically previously dissented all patients will have a basic SCR which will include only your allergies and any drug sensitivities plus recently prescribed medication as detailed in your GP records.

The doctors of The Wycliffe Medical Practice would like to encourage you to take advantage of a new initiative called the Enhanced Summary Care Record which will enable other healthcare providers to access the following information with your permission:

  • Medication
  • Allergies and adverse reactions
  • Significant medical history and procedures
  • Anticipatory care information
  • Immunisations
  • End of life care information
  • Communication preferences
  • Next of Kin
