Bracknell CCG First in South to Offer Summary Care Records to All Patients

Bracknell and Ascot CCG are delighted to announce that we are the first Clinical Commissioning Group in the southern area to offer Summary Care Records to 100 per cent of its patients.

What is a Summary Care Record?

Your Summary Care Record is an electronic record of your important medical information such as the medication you take, allergies you suffer and any reactions you may have had to medicines in the past.  You are free to opt out of the service at any time if you wish.

What does the Summary Care Records Service mean for me as a patient?

In the event of an emergency, or when your GP Practice is closed, having a Summary Care Record means that healthcare staff will have easier access to important information about your needs as a patient.  As a result, you should receive safer care.

Where can I find out more?
