SUMMARY CARE RECORDS GO LIVE 22 October 2014

Summary Care Records are  being introduced to improve the safety and quality of patient care.  Because the Summary Care Record is an electronic record, it will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information about you, and help to give you safe treatment during an emergency or when your GP surgery is closed.

A Summary Care Record is an electronic record that is stored at a central location, and 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 who have a special smartcard and access number (like a chip and pin credit card).  Healthcare staff will always ask your permission every time they need to look at your Summary Care Record.

For more information about Summary Care Records, visit the website: www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk.

 

YOUR GP CARES (BMA CAMPAIGN)

'Your GP Cares' so lets 'Put Patients First - Back General Practice '

The number of patients needing to see their GP is increasing, yet investment in general practice has
reached an historical low and patient care is now at risk of being compromised.

In response, the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) and the National Association for Patient Participation
(N.A.P.P.), launched the 'Put patients first: Back general practice' campaign.

At the same time, to raise the profile of the situation, the British Medical Association (BMA) has launched its 'Your GP Cares' Campaign

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please share this link as far and wide as possible. The BMA are running a national campaign ‘Your GP Cares’. The campaign explains the crises that General Practice is currently facing and the fact that we are aware of the problems that patients are having at present with regards to getting an appointment. The campaign explains the reasons why we can’t “just get another Doctor” and why that is not the long-term solution. We need you, as patients, to have your say by contacting local MPs and getting involved in the campaign.
