Summary Care Record Opt Out

Your Summary Care Record contains important information from the record held by your GP practice and includes details of any medicines you are taking, any allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines that you have previously experienced. Your Summary Care Record also includes your name, address, date of birth and your unique NHS Number to help identify you correctly. As part of a mandatory national programme each GP Practice had to make a summary care record for each patient by March 2015 (unless the patient has already opted out). You can choose to opt out of this scheme at any time.

If you wish to opt out of the Summary Care Record scheme please complete the opt out form.

Summary Care Record Opt Out

Rosebank Health offers its patients the choice of having a Summary Care Record. The new NHS Summary Care Record has been introduced to help deliver better and safer care and give you more choice about whom you share your healthcare information with.

What is the NHS Summary Care Record?

The Summary Care Record contains basic information about:

  • any allergies you may have,
  • unexpected reactions to medications,
  • any prescriptions you have recently received

The intention is to help clinicians in A & E Departments and ‘Out of Hours’ health services to give you safe, timely and effective treatment. Clinicians will only be allowed to access your record if they are authorised to do so and, even then, only if you give your express permission. You will be asked if healthcare staff can look at your Summary Care Record every time they need to, unless it is an emergency, for instance, if you are unconscious. You can refuse if you think access is unnecessary.

Children under the age of 16

Patients under 16 years will have a Summary Care Record created for them unless their GP surgery is advised otherwise. If you are the parent or guardian of a child then please either make this information available to them or decide and act on their behalf.

You do not have to have a Summary Care Record, although you are strongly recommended to consider this choice. If you are happy for a Summary Care Record to be set up for you then you need take no further action. If you want to opt-out now, please tick the box below, fill out the relevant details and submit this form as soon as possible.
