Enhanced Summary Care Record

If you live in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland you can sign up to an enhanced summary care record.

Staff in hospitals, ambulance crews, NHS 111, out-of-hours and social care services do not routinely have access to individual’s GP medical records. By consenting to an Enhanced Summary Care Record we can all help health and care staff to treat us more quickly and effectively, enabling them to make better and safer decisions.

You will already have a core Summary Care Record, but by spending a couple of minutes to complete the consent form to enhance your records you could end up saving your life.

The record can include details of illnesses and health problems, past operations and vaccinations, treatment preferences, information about the kind of support needed, and who should be contacted if more information is required.

Please encourage your family and friends to sign up too. You can download the consent form  https://eastleicestershireandrutlandccg.nhs.uk/yourhealth/enhanced-summary-care-record/and then return the completed form to your GP practice reception. Or next time you are talking to someone at your practice why not give your consent verbally?

This information will be managed securely in line with the NHS Care Records Guarantee. The Record will only be accessed by health and care staff if consent is provided by the patient, unless they are unconscious or unable to communicate and they believe that accessing the record is in the patient’s best interest.

 

For ALL COVID questions and queries: Please DO NOT call the Practice. Patients should call 119 for the latest information and booking, including booster and 3rd dose vaccinations. Find out more online HERE
