Data Sharing


A summary care record (SCR) is an electronic medical record that contains information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

An SCR can help provide vital information to healthcare staff treating you. This will enable them to treat you more quickly and make safer decisions about how best to treat you. Authorised healthcare staff can only view your SCR but only with your consent at that time**.

If you are registered with a GP practice in England you will already have a Summary Care Record (SCR) unless you have previously opted not to have one.

If you do not wish to have a Summary Care Record you can complete an opt out form. The opt out form is available to download (see below) or you can pick up a form from the practice.

Adding Additional Information to your SCR option form

** In very exceptional circumstances, your information may be shared without your permission, for example if your life was at risk.



At the practice we use a secure electronic health records system called SystmOne. This system once implemented, can allow clinicians, with your permission, to share your full record held here with other healthcare services who are providing care for you. These other services will ask your permission to view your record.

SystmOne is currently used in some GP practices, Child Health Services, Community Services, Urgent Care and Out of Hours Services and some Hospitals. Sharing your health record will help us deliver the best level of care for you.

You have two choices which allow you to control how your record is shared, you can change these choices at anytime by informing the practice or the relevant service.

  • SHARING OUT - this controls whether your information recorded at this practice can be shared with other NHS services.

  • SHARING IN - this controls whether information that has been made shareable at other NHS care services can be viewed by the practice or not

To download the option form please click on the link below or alternatively please ask for a form from the reception.
