Summary Care Records
The Horse Fair Practice are supporting the roll out of the Summary Care Record and went live on 6 November 2012.
Summary Care Records will give healthcare staff access to key health information, which means they can provide safer care and treatment to patients in an emergency, for example, when providing care in out-of-hours services.
A Summary Care Record will hold limited essential information such as details of any medications the patient is taking and any allergies or adverse reactions to medicines they have had.
Additional information can be added to a patient's Summary Care Record with explicit consent from patient.
See option 2 on right hand side of page for further information about Summary Care Records.
