Pharmacy guide

It is important that pharmacy professionals are able to use the SCR to support them in delivering safe and effective healthcare.


Usage of the SCR by pharmacy professionals remains low. We understand misinformation has been generated and often it isn’t quite clear how and when you can access the SCR. This quick reference guide will support you in understanding how SCR can be used and also help dispel myths and misconceptions surrounding SCR.

This guidance has been developed in collaboration with and has been endorsed by NHS Digital and Company Chemists Association.
