Your NHS Number – Your healthcare, your record, your number
Everyone registered with the NHS in England and Wales has their own unique number. Your NHS Number helps healthcare staff to find your health records.
Keep a record of your NHS Number safe.
You may have an old medical card, with the old-style NHS Number made up of both letters and numbers. This is replaced, for all patients, by a new NHS Number made up entirely of numbers (in a 3-3-4 format). You will need proof of ID (such as a driving licence or passport) to retrieve your NHS Number from us. Please ask at reception.
Summary Care Records (SCR’S)
The NHS is changing how patient information is stored and shared in England, to provide better care for patients. SCRs provide healthcare staff treating patients in an emergency or out-of-hours with faster access to key clinical information.
The Summary Care Record is a copy of key information from your GP record. It provides authorised healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you when you need unplanned care or when your GP practice is closed.
Summary Care Records improve the safety and quality of your care.
