Summary Care Record

summary care recordMercheford House now upload patient details from our clinical system to the Summary Care Record (SCR) Database held by the NHS. These uploads will be done automatically.


The Summary Care Record will contain basic information about any allergies you may have, your medication you take, and any unexpected reactions to drugs etc.  The intention is to help clinicians in Hospitals, Accident & Emergency Departments and "Out of Hours" health services to give you safe, timely and effective treatment.


You will always be asked before your Summary Care Record is accessed by healthcare staff (unless you are unable to give your consent e.g. you are unconscious) you will always have the right to refuse to share information.
