Using SCR in community pharmacy means:
- fewer referrals to other NHS care settings
- a reduced need for phone calls to GP practices
- fewer prescribing errors
- reduced patient waiting times and improved service for patients
Because of these benefits, the use of SCR is a factor in funding for community pharmacies.
