NHS Digital reports that community pharmacists now have better access to SCR

Regular readers of mine will know that I’m always a little anti-local shared records schemes given there is a perfectly good national scheme called summary care record – and its enhanced form. Living and working on the Boundary of an STP where I and my patients often cross the border into another region makes me less enamoured of county based schemes.

Part of this is the knowledge that patients work all over and holiday all over and can present anywhere.

Its interesting to see that NHS digital is reporting that Community pharmacists will now have easier and faster access to the SCR via smart card.
