Summary Care Records

The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care. The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely. Healthcare staff will ask your permission before they look at your record, except in certain circumstances for example if you are unconscious.
