In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the requirement for patients to provide explicit consent for additional information to be added to your Summary Care Record (SCR) has been temporarily suspended.
The SCR with additional information can provide health professionals caring for you with better access to key information in your GP Record.
This will include;
- Your long term health conditions
- Your healthcare needs and personal preferences
- Your immunisations
- Your major operations
The GP can, if deemed clinically appropriate, choose to share the additional information without your consent.
Please be reassured that any consent or opt out you have previously given for the SCR will not change.
