The summary care record (SCR) is an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP
medical records. It can be seen and used by Healthcare Professionals involved in the patient’s direct care.
These include, Ambulance Paramedics, hospital staff including Minor Injury Units and out of hours services.
This can only be accessed by authorised personnel with your expressed consent.
Access to SCR information means that care in other settings is safer, reducing the risk of prescribing errors. It
also helps avoid delays to urgent care.

If you have received an invitation for your FREE NHS Health Check, please read and digest this information leaflet before attending your appointment.
NHS Health Checks are being offered to people aged between 40 and 74 once every five years. The basic check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. If there are any warning signs, then together we can do something about it.
By taking early action, you can improve your health and prevent the onset of these conditions. There is good evidence for this.
The check should take about 20 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height weight and blood pressure. You will also need a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol and diabetes level.
Once you have booked your appointment with the reception team, we ask that you attend 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so you can use the height, weight and blood pressure machine situated at the back of the downstairs waiting room.
