Funding for rollout of summary care record access

The March 2016 Drug Tariff notified pharmacy contractors that to support the implementation of the summary care record (SCR), community pharmacies will be paid an allowance of £200 from the 1 March 2016, subject to certain conditions.

The £200 allowance will be triggered when the pharmacy contractor has submitted the SCR in Community Pharmacy usage agreement to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and accessed the SCR. The allowance will only be paid once, irrespective of any subsequent premises merger, sale or relocation. The allowance will be time-limited and cease on the 31 March 2017.
