The summary care record means that part of your medical record can be accessed anywhere in the country when you seek medical advice. This is particularly useful if your care is unplanned, urgent or out of hours. Information in your SCR could save you and the NHS time and also one day be lifesaving. You have the choice of not taking part in the information sharing scheme. If you do not want to participate then please ask a receptionists for an “Opt Out” form. After completing the form please hand it back to a receptionist, who will then ensure that your “opt out” choice is recorded in your medical record.
