ENRICHED SUMMARY CARE RECORD (ESCR)
Most patients have a summary care record which shares important information between healthcare professionals such as medication, allergies and adverse reactions which is extremely useful if you are seen by another doctor other than your own GP including hospital admissions. There is now the enriched SCR which also includes important medical history and procedures, immunisations and anticipatory care information such as your wishes for emergency care or end of life plans. This ESCR will be especially helpful when treating patients with urgent medical needs such as hospitals or by out of hours doctors. It also saves you having to try to remember what conditions you have plus any allergies and medications you take, especially important for elderly patients who may not remember as well as they used to.
If you would like to have an ESCR, please let us know and we will tick the box in your records. You may also be asked this question by our doctors or reception team in the future.
We accept patients for registration within the practice boundary. From October 2019, we will not accept patients outside this boundary.
