SUMMARY CARE RECORD
NHS England requires practices to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to patients' summary information, at least on a daily basis, to the Summary Care Record (SCR). Roysia Surgery has been doing this from the 25th of February 2015.
Having your SCR available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs to which you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity.
Of course, if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way then you will need to to let us know so that we can update your record. Print the opt out form below, complete it and bring it into the surgery.
Roysia Surgery confirms that your SCR will be automatically updated on at least a daily basis to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can be.

DETAILED CODED RECORD ACCESS
NHS England requires practices to enable patients to have online access to a more detailed version of their medical record (rather than the Summary Care Record). This access will include test results and codes relating to medical or surgical procedures, consultations, referrals made and letters received. This access will not include free text, letters, attachments and administrative items.
There are circumstances where a GP may believe it is not in the best interests of the patient to share all information in the record, for example, where it could cause harm to their physical or mental health. GPs will be provided with the tools to withhold coded information where they judge it to be in the patient's interests or where there is reference to a third party.
Roysia Surgery is committed to implementing this system but we do stress that your medical record is designed to be used by clinical professionals to ensure you receive the best possible care. Some of the information within your medical record may be highly technical, written by specialists and not easily understood.
