Children and the Summary Care Record
If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16, you should make this information available to them and support the child to come to a decision as to whether to have a Summary Care Record or not.
If you believe that your child should opt-out of having a Summary Care Record, we strongly recommend that you discuss this with your child's GP. This will allow your child's GP to highlight the consequences of opting-out, prior to you finalising your decision.
See the patient leaflet http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/scr/library/patientleaf.pdf
Variations of the above information are used in new patient registration packs in the new patient registration process to remind new patients at practices of their choices around SCR.
