The SCR scheme is designed to improve the safety and quality of patient care. SCRs will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to reliable information about you to help with your treatment. Initially, only details of repeat prescriptions, allergies and adverse reactions will be held. Please note that if you wish to opt out of having an SCR you need to sign an opt out form downloadable from www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk and give this to the practice.
