Summary Care Records

Summary Care Records

A Summary Care Record (SCR) is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed. In an emergency, or when it is urgent, it’s important that doctors caring for you know about you and any important medical conditions you may have, or medicines that you are taking.

We have a contractual obligation to upload SCR information on a daily basis.  For further information please use the links below:
