Practices are required to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to a patient’s summary information, at least on a daily basis to the Summary Care record (SCR). Having your Summary Care Record available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs to which you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity.
Amersham Health Centre is already live with SCR. However, if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way and have not already informed the practice then you will need to let us know and we will update your record. You can do this via the ‘Summary Care Record Opt out form’ which is available from the surgery.
