Summary Care Records
Norton Medical Centre creates a Summary Care Records for each patient. This will contain information about any allergies you may have, unexpected reactions to medications, and any prescriptions you have recently received. The intention is to help clinicians in Accident and Emergency departments and 'Out of Hours' health services to give you safe, timely and effective treatment.
More information about Summary Care Records can be found at the following address: www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk
A Summary Care Record will be created for you unless you choose to opt-out.
If you wish to opt-out of having a Summary Care Records, please complete this form and return to reception. Alternatively, if you have access to SystmOnline you can complete the 'Consent to share information' questionnaire.
