GP practices are required to provide an automated upload of any changes to a patient’s summary information, at least once every working day, to the Summary Care Record (SCR).
The requirement is on the basis of the current definition of the SCR, i.e. the core SCR record contains medications, allergies and adverse reactions and uploaded on the basis of implied patient consent. Additional information can only be uploaded with explicit patient consent and should be information required to support patient care in an emergency or urgent situation.
Glebe House Surgery is now fully compliant with this requirement.
