More than 96 percent of patients in England have a Summary Care Record (SCR). The SCR provides key clinical information about a patient sourced from their GP record. SCRs are used successfully in many care settings across the NHS, including accident and emergency departments, out-of-hours services and hospital pharmacies.
Community pharmacists and designated members of the pharmacy team can now, with patient consent, access an SCR for patients.
SCR access in community pharmacy has demonstrated benefits to patients by enabling access to more information so pharmacists and pharmacy technicians can provide a safer, more efficient and better-informed service for those patients who require it.
