    The above article fails to mention the "enriched" SCR when a patient consents at their GP to share their information. This has a much richer data set than the normal SCR. This can include: significant medical history (past and present), reason for medication,
    anticipatory care information (such as information about the management of long term conditions),
    end of life care information (from the SCCI1580 national dataset) and Immunisations.

    Look at the NHS Digital pages for information h
    https://digital.nhs.uk/services/summary-care-records-scr/additional-information-in-scr

    The prevalence of enriched/additional information SCR is on the increase, and just needs patient education to ask GPs to enable the sharing for other healthcare professionals.

    The developments in local care records such as one in Doncaster (iDCR) are to be welcomed to enable all healthcare professionals make informed decisions with the patient about their care in that particular setting - informed by the care given in others.
