|Summary Care Records
Summary Care Records have been introduced in this practice. A Summary Care Record is an electronic record containing a summary of your Medications, Allergies and Adverse Reactions, which can be made available to NHS healthcare staff caring for you in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.
If you would like a Summary Care Record you need take no further action, one will be created for you.
