Summary Care Record (SCR) is an electronic record of important information about a patient’s health. It holds information about current medications, allergies and any bad reactions to medicines. Great Staughton Surgery now uploads Summary Care Records which, with the patient's permission and only when necessary, may be viewed by healthcare agencies such as the hospital and Out of Hours. For further information, please ask reception. You can also phone the Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020 or visit the website at www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk.
