NHS Summary Care Records are coming
Have you made your choice?
A Summary Care Record is an electronic record containing key health information, which can be made available to NHS healthcare staff caring for you in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.
If you haven’t already made your choice, please make it now:
• Yes I would like a Summary Care Record
You do not need to do anything and a Summary Care Record will be made for you
• No I do not want a Summary Care Record
An opt out form is available at reception. Please complete the form and hand it to the receptionist. Your existing health record at your GP practice will continue to be used as it is now
