Summary Care Records

As part of a mandatory, national programme each GP practice will have to make a summary care record for each patient unless the patient has already opted out.

If you would like to not be a part of this, please complete our Summary Care Record Opt Out form.

Further information can be found on the NHS Digital website.

Transferring Your Electronic Health Record

Your GP practice holds copies of your patient health record electronically and in paper format. Both contain the healthcare information about you that your GP needs including your medical history, medications, allergies, immunisations and vaccinations.

If you have previously registered with a different GP in England, upon registering at this practice your electronic health record will, where possible, be transferred automatically from your previous practice through the use of an NHS system called GP2GP.
