Quality Payments: SCR calculator available

NHS Digital’s Summary Care Record (SCR) calculator webpage, for  Quality Payments Schemes. To use the calculator:

  • access the dashboard data;
  • use the arrows at the bottom to scroll between weekly SCR views and the QP calculator;
  • enter your pharmacy name or ODS (F) code into the search box;
  • select from the list, or scroll through the pharmacy list to select; and
  • view totals in the box (correct as of the date the data was extracted).

The SCR calculator does not provide live information; it is only updated weekly on Thursdays (with the previous week’s viewing figures as of the end of Sunday). The calculator states the date of the data being used. SCR usage data in raw spreadsheet format will continue to be published for those that need to use this spreadsheet data for their bespoke analysis.

NHS Digital are also publishing the data in spreadsheet format on their calculator webpage.
