Sharing of your Electronic Medical Record


At Thorpewood we share your medical records with other services treating you.  For full details please take time to read the leaflet below.


 Your Electronic Health Record - A Patient Guide  


Summary Care Records

Summary Care Records are an electronic record of a patients medical history. Initially SCRs will hold basic information such as any medication currently being taken, any known allergies and whether in the past the patient has had an adverse reaction to treatment.  


In time it is expected that the information held will build to include other appropriate health related issues. 


The aim of the scheme is to help provide better and safer healthcare giving any, authorised healthcare professional access to the SCR. There are clear policies in place as to who, and under what circumstances, can access the information. 


Anyone who registers with the practice will benefit from having a SCR unless they decide to 'opt-out' of the scheme. To opt out you will need to fill in the Opt-out form and hand this into reception.
