A child who is being looked after by their local authority is known as a child in care. They might be living: with foster parents, at home with their parents under the supervision of social services or in residential children’s homes.
A carer is a friend / family member who gives their time to support a person in their home, to an extent that the person could not remain at home if this care was not being provided. A carer can receive Carers Allowance (but not a wage) and the care they are giving will significantly affect their own life.
Has the child ever had any of the following conditions? If yes, please provide the year of diagnosis.
If yes, please advise the family member/s who have the condition
Please tell us about your child’s smoking habits
Summary Care Record (SCR)
As you are registering your child with this practice, we would like to recommend that you take advantage of the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Core SCR includes important information about your child’s health: Medicines your child are taking, allergies they suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines.
You can also choose to have additional information included in your child’s SCR, which can improve the care your child receives. This information includes: Your child’s illnesses and health problems, operations and vaccinations they have had in the past, how they would like to be treated – such as where you would prefer your child to receive care; what support your child might need and who should be contacted for more information about them.
Your child may need to be treated by health and care professionals outside of the practice who do not know your child’s medical history. Having the additional information SCR can help the staff involved in your child’s care access information more quickly, allowing them to make informed decisions about their healthcare. More information can be found by visiting www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk
Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG)
Whilst the SCR mentioned above shares a very small portion of your child’s medical record across the whole NHS, the MIG shares a much broader view of their records but only with local NHS providers – and only when you give explicit consent at the point of care.
