Smartcards are used by community pharmacy team members to access NHS IT systems such as EPS and the Summary Care Record (SCR). There is a system in place to support pharmacy teams with the maintenance of their Smartcards and this briefing outlines how this allows pharmacy team members to self-manage their Smartcards.
