The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record (SCR), which will be used in emergency care. The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, 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. Your Summary Care Record will be available to authorised emergency healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask your permission before they look at it.
At the begining of May 2014 Alrewas Surgery will upload this information and a Summary Care Record will be created for each patient registered with us.
