Latest news

Summary Care Records

You should now have recieved a letter informing you about your Summary Care Record (SCR).

At first, your SCR will contain information about your medicines, any allergies you may have and any bad reactions to medicines. Over time, further details about significant health problems, summaries of your care and the professionals treating you may be added.

If you require further information about your SCR, please see the NHS Care Records website or contact the NHS Care Records Service Information Line on 0845 603 8510.

If you wish your SCR to be created, you need do nothing.

If you do not wish for your SCR to be created, you must tell us and complete an opt-out form. You can obtain an opt-out form from us at the surgery, by downloading one from the NHS Care Records website or by contacting the NHS Care Records Service Information Line on 0845 603 8510.

As a patient, you have choices - you can opt out/back in at any time and discuss what further details are uploaded with your GP.

Please use your NHS number (at the top of your letter from NHS Surrey) in all correspondence with us - using your NHS number to identify you correctly is an important step towards improving the safety of your healthcare. NHS staff will begin to ask for your NHS number more often, so please make a note of it and keep it in a safe place.
