SCR information for patients
The NHS in England is introducing Summary Care Records
(SCRs) to improve the safety and quality of patient care.
It will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to reliable information about you to help with your treatment.
Today, all the places where you receive care keep records
about you. They can usually only share information from your records by letter,
e-mail, fax or phone. At times, this can be slow and sometimes things get lost
on the way.
As at 26/4/13 almost 27 million records had been created
across England. Having an SCR gives authorised healthcare staff a quicker way
to get important information about you, in an emergency or out-of-hours.
Following the results of your comments on the patient survey we will be sending you newsletters every 2 weeks.
