Summary Care Records
Summary Care Records – What you need to know
A Summary Care Record 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.
Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
Patients across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are receiving letters asking them to opt in or opt out of the Summary Care Record exercise.
