Summary Care Record - FHIR API

Access patients' summary care records using our FHIR API.


Use this API to access a patient's Summary Care Record (SCR) - an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. They can be seen and used by authorised staff in other areas of the health and care system involved in the patient's direct care.

Also use this API to access the Access Control Service (ACS) - which manages consent to share information for SCR. GP systems must check consent to share before sharing a patient's Summary Care Record.

You can:

  • create or add to a patient's Summary Care Record - if you are a GP system
  • retrieve a patient's Summary Care Record
  • set and check consent to share information - via the Access Control Service (ACS)

You cannot use this API to update GP medical records.
