SUMMARY CARE RECORD
Derbyshire is currently in the process of rolling out patient
Summary Care Records.
Many of you will have received letters regarding this.
The Summary Care Record is a record of your Name, Address, Allergies, Sensitivities and Medications which are listed in your medical records. The Summary Care Record can be viewed by Hospital clinicians and Out of Hours Services (ONLY WITH YOUR PERMISSION) should you need to be treated.
If you DO NOT wish your details to be accessed by the Hospital and Out of Hours Service please complete the form you have been sent and return it to the address provided or to the surgery.
If you have no objection to your details being accessed then you do not need to do anything at all, you can destroy the letter.
YOU ONLY COMPLETE AND RETURN THE FORM IF YOU DO NOT WISH YOUR DETAILS TO BE ACCESSED BY THE HOSPITAL AND OUT OF HOURS SERVICE
For further information or to download an Opt Out form, please follow the link above or type Summary Care Records into your internet browser for the NHS Care Records website
