Summary Care Records Briefing Session 24th May 2016 Lowestoft
Tuesday, 24 May, 2016 19:30-20:30
The Hotel Victoria, Kirkley Cliff, Lowestoft, Suffolk, NR33 0BZ
The project to roll out Summary Care Record access in Community Pharmacy continues and a series of dates have been released for the SCR briefing sessions.
The first essential step is that all pharmacies must attend a face to face briefing event, as set out by Health and Social Care Information Centre’s (HSCIC) process steps for SCR rollout in pharmacies. Not all pharmacy staff need attend, only ONE representative from each pharmacy who will be the implementation lead for the pharmacy; they can be either a pharmacist, registered pharmacy technician or other permanent employed team member. Multiple attendees from a pharmacy will only be accepted if space permits.
There must be one implementation lead for each pharmacy location, so if you are chain of pharmacies with multiple locations then one representative will need to attend for every location who will co-ordinate activities at that location. However, please let NELCSU know if this is the case by email so they can help co-ordinate the roll out to the pharmacies in your group.
The purpose of the event is to supply you with the information to roll out SCR in your pharmacy. It will enable you to understand:
- Background- what is a Summary Care Record (SCR)
- Viewing the SCR-requirements, permission to view, security measures
- Implementing SCR in your pharmacy
- Notification of readiness to ‘go live’
- Payment and resources
- How to plan for Privacy Officer alerts
- What you need to do next
