Lisson Grove Health Centre -Summary Care Record (SCR) Statement of Intent
Under the new NHS GP GMS Contract (2014/2015 requirements), all GP practices are required to provide an automated upload of any changes to a patient's summary information, at least once every working day, to the Summary Care Record (SCR).
We have been advised that we should put these requirements in place as soon as possible after 1 April 2014 and must, by 30 September 2014, publicise our statement of intent at the practice premises and, on our website. The Health Secretary has also set a deadline of April 2015 for practices to provide online access to their own records, which as a minimum means giving patients access to the information contained in their Summary Care Record upload.
Summary Care Records contain details of a patient’s key health information – medications, allergies and adverse reactions. They are accessible to authorised healthcare staff in emergency settings in England and can support better, safer prescribing of medication for patients by providing up-to-date information on a patient’s allergies, previous adverse reactions and medications. Patient care can be supported by healthcare staff having faster access to their medical information and patients may not be required to repeat information to different NHS staff treating them.
Over 60% of GP surgeries in England have already gone live with the SCR and 64% of patients nationally now have a Summary Care Record. Central London is currently one of only 4 CCGs in London not to have any practices uploading Summary Care Records (the others are Camden, Ealing, and Hillingdon).
The local NHS IT Strategic Team plan to start running all the relevant checks and assurance work on our system, and upload, and will train GPs and practice staff how to use the consent model. There is no fixed timetable for this roll out. We will keep patients informed by displaying posters and leaflets in the waiting areas and include information on our website and Newsletters. We will continue to record SCR opt outs at the point of registration. If this is not currently part of your registration process, it should be incorporated into it
Please note that this is the statement of intent that by September 30th Lisson Grove Health Centre will have had our system uploaded to the SCR and deliver SCR to our patients.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please feel free to Jeanette Creaser, practice manager or Amanda Gaffney, assistant practice manager.
You can choose to have a Summary Care Record. If you would like one, you don't need to do anything. It will happen automatically. If you don’t want a Summary Care Record you can opt out by signing the opt out form and giving this into the reception.

Local record sharing: how your information can be shared with local health services
Your records at the practice are held on a clinical system called SystmOne that allows the sharing of electronic records across different healthcare settings and you have choices about your NHS care records.
How is this different from the Summary Care Record?
The Summary Care Record is a national database which holds information regarding your medications, allergies and adverse reactions. Clinicians across England involved in emergency or unscheduled care have access to this. The Local Health Record is a locally shared record, allowing clinicians who are involved in your care at a local level to see a shared record rather than a national scheme. It also contains more information about your medical history.
- You can choose to share your electronic record with other care services by sharing out. This controls whether your information entered at this service can be shared with other NHS services (i.e. made shareable). If you consent to this clinicians at other services that care for you and use SystmOne will be able to see the information recorded here. E.g. a district nurse.
- You can choose to share your electronic record with other care services by Sharing in. This controls whether information that has been made shareable at other NHS care services can be viewed by that care service or not (i.e shared in). If you consent to this the Health Centre will be able to view information recorded on your patient record by other NHS services using SystmOne e.g. hospitals and community services.
- You can choose not to share your electronic record with other care services i.e. not to share in or out by signing the opt out form and giving this in to reception.
It will be presumed if you agree to referral to another service that you consent to us sharing the information required for the referral.

If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery.
