Description: The Summary Care Record supports patient care by providing healthcare staff in urgent and emergency care settings with the essential medical information they need to support safe treatment. The SCR includes a defined set of key patient data for every patient in England except those who choose not to have one. The over arching aim is that the SCR will contain only significant aspects of a person’s care, those deemed to deliver benefit to a patient when receiving urgent and emergency care. When a patient’s SCR is first created it will contain details of: Medications; Adverse reactions; and, Allergies from the patient's GP record. Patients have a choice to opt out of the SCR at any time and must give permission for clinicians to view their SCR. To support this, a SCR public information programme involves making patients and NHS healthcare staff aware of the SCR. This includes sending a personalised information pack to all GP registered patients, over the age of 16.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: The Patient Information Pack process has been fully completed. The implementation trajectory for record uploads and sites going live for viewings has been re-forecast due to the knock on effect from the change from Primary Care Trusts (PCT) to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG). The project remains confident that these will be fully completed by the close of the project. As of 1 March 2014 (Q4) there have been 35.3 million SCR uploads and 567 viewing sites have gone live.
Start date: 2006-04-01
End date: 2016-03-31
Schedule text: There has been no change in any of the critical milestones and the project remains due to complete for the end of March 2016
Baseline: £14.49m
Forecast: £15.35m
Variance: 5.96%
Variance text: The apparent overspend forecast in 13/14 is due to the fact that the Health and Social Care Information Centre percentage of the budget (20%) is now picking up work that would have been carried out by local PCT (now CCG) resource. Until local spend forecasts are adjusted, which account for 80% of the costs, an element of revenue spend will appear double counted. As of Q4 13/14 the budget had been reprofiled and no longer showed an overspend.
Whole Life Cost: £51.11m
WLCost text: The budget has not changed since the FBC was approved in 2012
