Providing useful information for people with learning disabilities, their carers and all health professionals

Summary Care Records

We want to make sure that people with a learning disability have a good experience when using health services. One way to do that is make sure that we know as much about you as possible.

The summary care record holds extra information about you and is kept at your doctors, it can be shared with other health professionals if you consent to this.

Please click on the leaflet below to find out more about the summary care records. It would be great if you could tell your doctor’s surgery things about you that could be added to your record that will make your experience better.

Examples of this are things like

A longer appointment.

A quiet area to wait.

Easy read information.
