The Summary Care Record is an electronic record which contains information about the patient's current medication and any allergies or adverse reactions the patient may have. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat the patient in an emergency.
Sharing medical information enables a clinician to get a full picture of all elements that affect your treatment. If some parts of your record are not available, this could adversely affect your treatment. Your information will only be shared with the health care staff involved with your care
