This is via TPP SystmOne using our website www.wellsidemedicalcentre.co.uk

If you do not already have a username and password for this system you will need to register by calling in to the practice in person with appropriate identification. Please enquire at reception beforehand as to the nature of identification that will be appropriate for this purpose.

 

We will seek necessary assurances from our clinical software providers to ensure that patients can request online access to their detailed coded records in a manner that is secure and safeguards the best interests of the patient.

We will inform patients when appropriate arrangements are in place and we will publicise and promote our online services using the practice website and waiting room posters.

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
