Healthcare for all the family

At Leyes Lane Pharmacy we are now able to access Summary Care Records (SCR)

A SCR is a copy of key information from your GP record. It provides authorised care professionals with faster, secure access to essential information about you when you need care.

Access to Summary Care Records enables us to improve the safety and quality of care we deliver by:

  • Ensuring the patient gets the right medicines
  • Improving efficiency by reducing the number of phone calls to GPs and reducing the time spent waiting on replies
  • Improving the patient’s experience by reducing patient waiting time for queries to be resolved, and resolving them at the point where they are presenting for care

Authorised members of our Pharmacy team will ask for your permission if they need to look at your SCR

Whenever a care professional accesses your SCR a log is kept. You can ask to see this log if you have concerns; this is known as a Subject Access Request.

If you are registered with a GP practice in England, you will already have an SCR unless you have previously chosen not to have one. It includes the following basic information:

  • Medicines you are taking
  • Allergies you suffer from
  • Any bad reactions to medicines

It also includes your name, address, date of birth and unique NHS Number which helps to identify you correctly.

Only authorised care professional staff in England who are involved in your direct care can have access to your SCR. Your SCR will not be used for any other purposes.

These staff:

  • Need to have a Smartcard with a chip and passcode
  • Will only see the information they need to do their job
  • Will have their details recorded every time they look at your record

For more information talk to our Pharmacy team, your GP practice or visit www.hscic.gov.uk/scr/patients
