(SCR) Summary Care Record

How information about you

helps us to provide better care

Confidential information from your medical records can be

used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we

can provide the best possible care for everyone.

This information along with your postcode and NHS number

but not your name, are sent to a secure system where

it can be linked with other health information.

This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out

medical research to use information from different parts

of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information

to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.

If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from

happening, please click here for a copy of

the leaflet “How information

about you helps us to provide better care”.
