(NATIONAL AND LOCAL INITIATIVES) FOR SHARING YOUR RECORDS
A. Summary Care Record (SCR) is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.
Why do I need a Summary Care Record?
Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.
Who can see it?
Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record.
How do I know if I have one?
Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by asking your GP
Do I have to have one?
No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page. You can always opt back in.

WE ARE IMPROVING THE WAY WE CONNECT YOUR CARE........
For residents registered with a GP in Kingston there is already a system in place called Kingston Care Record. This will be replaced by a new system across South West London called CONNECTING YOUR CARE. For more information on this please pick up a leaflet from the surgery, or speak to one of our receptionists.
