If you want to view a patient’s summary care record, you must:
- have the appropriate codes on your smartcard and be logged in
- be involved in the patient’s care when you access the record – this is called having a ‘legitimate relationship’
- get ‘permission to view’ - permission from the patient to view the record – or record emergency access.
