IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR NHS HEALTH RECORDS - PLEASE READ - YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHOICE
The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care situations.
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. This information will be available to authorised health care staff providing your care anywhere in England. We recommend that you read the links on the right hand side for more detailed information about the summary care record. You can also get more information by visiting www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or by telephoning the helpline on 0300 123 3020.
