The Practice now participates in Summary Care Records which means an electronic copy of key information from the medical record held here in the Surgery is made available to healthcare staff that may be treating patients in an emergency setting, it includes details of: medication, allergies and which medicines make a patient ill (adverse effects). Patients can choose to opt out and a special code is recorded in the medical record to prevent this data going outside of the Practice. This is different to the care.data for Health Social Care Information Centre. If you wish to opt out, please let us know at the surgery that you wish to opt out of summary care record and we will action this immediately. Or alternatively, use our 'do it online' section which now has a summary care record opt out form.
Please Note if you have opted out of the Summary Care Record, you cannot use the extended access hub as the consulting Clinician would not be able to see your records.
