Ask your doctor to include additional information on your SCR

 

You can add more information to your SCR by asking your doctor. They can add extra details from your medical notes, including:

  • health problems like dementia or diabetes

  • details of your carer

  • your treatment preferences

  • communication needs, for example if you have hearing difficulties or need an interpreter

 

This will help medical staff care for you properly, and respect your choices, when you need care away from your GP surgery. This is because having more information on your SCR means they will have a better understanding of your needs and preferences.

 

When you are treated away from your usual doctor's surgery, the health care staff there can't see your GP medical records. Looking at your SCR can speed up your care and make sure you are given the right medicines and treatment.
