Summary Care Record - FHIR API

Overview

Use this API to access or update a patient's Summary Care Record (SCR) - an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. SCRs 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 update a patient's consent to share their SCR, and to raise a privacy alert where you have to override a patient's dissent to share their SCR in certain circumstances. You can:

get a patient's SCR identifier

get a patient's SCR

upload a patient's SCR

send a privacy alert message, if you have to override a patient's dissent to view their SCR

update a patient's consent to share their SCR
