NHS Record Sharing

The Summary Care Record (SCR) is a digital summary of the key clinical information about you. It is used by healthcare staff outside of the GP practice in an urgent or emergency setting. If this is ever accessed your permission is requested unless in exceptional circumstances such as you being unconscious.

The SCR contains information about your medications and allergies. The information is taken from the medical record held by your GP.

An SCR is optional and you can choose whether to have one or not. You may change your mind at any time. For more information talk to our Staff, the Patient and Liaison Service (01246 512 640) or www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk.

NHS Full Record Sharing

Your GP medical record is not routinely shared with other NHS healthcare providers. This means that when you use other NHS services (such as physiotherapy, district nurses, podiatry etc) or when you attend hospitals, the healthcare professionals are unable to see your medical record. Conversely, when you receive treatment outside of the GP surgery, we are unable to see details of this consultation unless the other healthcare provider writes us a letter.

Many NHS computer systems now have the functionality to allow their records to be shared across NHS organisations and we believe that better sharing of information between NHS providers results in improved safety and efficiency of the healthcare system.

In order for your records to be shared, you need to grant access at both ends. We will set your record to allow sharing in & out of the practice to other NHS healthcare providers unless you advise otherwise. To allow us to receive information from other healthcare providers, please grant permission with that healthcare provider at the point of use.

Allergies

Supplementary Questions

I am not ordinarily a resident in the UK

Ordinarily Resident

Anybody in England can register with a GP practice and receive free medical care from that practice.

However, if you are not ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK you may have to pay for NHS treatment outside of the GP practice. Being ordinarily resident broadly means living lawfully in the UK on a properly settled basis for the time being. In most cases, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have the status of ‘indefinite leave to remain’ in the UK.

Some services, such as diagnostic tests of suspected infectious diseases and any treatment of those diseases are free of charge to all people, while some groups who are not ordinarily resident here are exempt from all treatment charges.

More information on ordinary residence, exemptions and paying for NHS services can be found in the Visitor and Migrant patient leaflet, available from your GP practice. Alternatively for more information go to www.nhs.uk/visitingengland.

You may be asked to provide proof of entitlement in order to receive free NHS treatment outside of the GP practice, otherwise you may be charged for your treatment. Even if you have to pay for a service, you will always be provided with any immediately necessary or urgent treatment, regardless of advance payment.

The information you give on this form will be used to assist in identifying your chargeable status, and may be shared, including with NHS secondary care organisations (e.g. hospitals) and NHS Digital, for the purposes of validation, invoicing and cost recovery. You may be contacted on behalf of the NHS to confirm any details you have provided.

Please select one of the following statements:

I declare that the information I give on this form is correct and complete. I understand that if it is not correct, appropriate
action may be taken against me.

A parent/guardian should complete the form on behalf of a child under 16.

Your EHIC, PRC or S1 information will be shared with The Department for Work and Pensions for the purpose of recovering your NHS costs from your home country.
