Quality Payments: SCR calculator now available

March 9, 2017

NHS Digital has published the Summary Care Record (SCR) usage calculator tool, as referenced in NHS England’s quality criteria guidance.

The SCR calculator has been created to assist community pharmacy contractors in monitoring and increasing their SCR usage to meet the SCR quality criterion, which requires contractors to be able to demonstrate on the day of the review, a total increase in access to SCR from period 1 to period 2 as defined below.

  Period 1 Period 2
For 28th April 2017 review point Monday 27th June 2016 to Sunday 27th November 2016 Monday 28th November 2016 to Sunday 30th April 2017

The calculator will show the number of times a pharmacy has viewed the SCR in period 1 and period 2.

The calculator will be updated every Thursday to show the latest figures.
