(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”.
