Summary Care Record: adding additional information

NHS Digital has announced a more efficient way to update Summary Care Records (SCRs) with additional information from a patient’s GP record.

Additional information can be added with the patient’s explicit consent, by someone with the appropriate role profile. This provides an immediate and cost effective way to increase the flow of information across the healthcare system whilst supporting safer, more effective and efficient care that improves patient experience.
