Coronavirus (COVID-19) information
The SCRa private beta is in early development. Future release and transition information will be provided on this page.
To help the NHS to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are providing a COVID-19 Shielded Patient Flag and including additional information in Summary Care Records for patients by default, unless they have previously told the NHS that they did not want their information to be shared.
There will also be a temporary change to include COVID-19 codes on the patient’s SCR. Users of the Summary Care Record application and SCR 1-click systems will be made aware of specific suspected and confirmed COVID-19 information by a message box displayed on the SCR.
