Summary Care Records
A Summary Care Record is an electronic record that's stored at a central location. As the name suggests, the record will not contain detailed information about your medical history, but will only contain important health information, such as:
- whether you're taking any prescription medication
- whether you have any allergies
- whether you've previously had a bad reaction to any medication
Access to your Summary Care Record will be strictly controlled. The only people who can see the information will be healthcare staff directly involved in your care. This will be of great benefit if you are admitted to hospital in your local area or out of area.

The Care.data Program enables the NHS and Health and Social Care Information Centre to use anonymised patient information to gain a complete picture of what is happening across health and social care and to plan services according to what is needed.
The data extracted will also help researchers, by supporting studies that identify patterns in diseases, responses to different treatments, and the effectiveness of different services, without identifying individual patients.
The General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) will be used to extract GP data each month. This will only include: NHS number, date of birth, postcode, and gender which will allow patients' GP data to be linked to their hospital data. No free text will be extracted, only coded information about referrals, NHS prescriptions and other clinical data.
