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:
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:
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.
