Shared health summaries

Summaries of your health status and added to your record by healthcare providers.

Your important health information at your fingertips

A shared health summary is a clinical record that can include your diagnosed conditions and the medicines you take. A shared health summary is normally completed when you see your primary healthcare provider and can be written by a GP, a registered nurse or an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner.

Information can include:

  • known allergies and adverse reactions
  • medications you are taking
  • medical history
  • immunisations.

People who can access your record will be able to view this information. Find out more about who can access a record.
