Summary Care Record

The Summary Care Record (SCR) is a secure, electronic patient record that contains key information derived from patients’ detailed GP records. It is accessed in emergency and unplanned care scenarios, where such information would otherwise be unavailable.

What does the SCR contain?

The core dataset contains information about a patient’s medication, allergies and any previous adverse reactions to medicines. Other information such as significant medical history, care plans, patient wishes or preferences (and other relevant information) can be added with the consent of the patient.
