Your Summary Care Record is designed to help other medical professionals who may need to care for you but are not familiar with your medical history, such as district nurses or the ambulance service. It includes as a minimum:
- Your name
- Date of birth
- NHS number
- Current medication
- Adverse reactions to medications
You can choose to opt out of this scheme at any time. However, doing so will mean that those treating you in an emergency may not be aware of your allergies or current medications and therefore may not be able to treat you safely
If you still wish to opt out of the Summary Care Record scheme, please complete this form.
