SCR roll-out criticised

2nd March 2010

The British Medical Association has said the government's roll-out of the Summary Care Record programme is being performed too quickly.

Dr Grant Ingrams, chair of the GP IT Committee, said: "The Summary Care Record roll-out is now happening too hastily. While we believe it has the potential to improve both the quality and safety of patient care, we are concerned at the speed because it means patients are very unlikely to be aware of what they are automatically being enrolled into."
