Description: The Summary Care Record supports patient care by providing healthcare staff in urgent and emergency care settings with the essential medical information they need to support safe treatment. The Summary Care Record includes a defined set of key patient data for every patient in England except those who choose not to have one. The overarching aim is that the Summary Care Record will contain only significant aspects of a person’s care, those deemed to deliver benefit to a patient when receiving urgent and emergency care. When a patient’s Summary Care Record is first created it will contain details of: Medications; Adverse reactions; and, Allergies from the patient's GP record. Patients have a choice to opt out of the Summary Care Record at any time and must give permission for clinicians to view their Summary Care Record. To support this, a Summary Care Record public information programme involves making patients and NHS healthcare staff aware of the Summary Care Record. This includes sending a personalised information pack to all GP registered patients, over the age of 16.
