NHS England introduced Summary Care Records (SCR), which will be used in emergency care. The record contains information about any medication you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had, to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely.
No other information will be included in the SCR.

A dedicated NHS Summary Care Record information line is available to you on 0300 123 3020 or you can visit their website here.
