What does it mean if I DO NOT have a Summary Care Record?
NHS healthcare staff caring for you may not be aware of your current medications, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had, in order to treat you safely in an emergency. Your records will stay as they are now with information being shared by letter, email, fax or phone. If you have any questions, or if you want to discuss your choices, please:
• phone the Summary Care Record
Information Line on
0300 123 3020;
• contact your local Patient Advice
Liaison Service (PALS); or
• contact your GP practice.
