Patients Encouraged to Share More Information to Help Improve Care

30th October 2017

East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (ELRCCG) are encouraging patients living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to share more information about their health and preferences to help doctors and nurses treat them.

ELRCCG say that consenting to an ‘Enhanced Summary Care Record’ means patients can receive better, quicker care if healthcare is needed away from their usual GP surgery, such as in an emergency, on holiday, when their normal surgery is closed, at hospital clinics, and when visiting a pharmacy.
