Summary Care Record
Access to SCR information means that care in other settings is safer, reducing the risk of prescribing errors. It also helps avoid delays to urgent care.
- current medication
- allergies and details of any previous bad reactions to medicines
- the name, address, date of birth and NHS number of the patient
It is essential that you gain explicit consent to view the patients SCR within OPERA. This should be done each time an SCR access is requested. SCRs are available to view within application in the documents tab. SCR should only be viewed by clinicians with a legitimate reason to access. You should check the date on the SCR when considering the information within it.
