SCR access and Smartcard

SCR access and Smartcard

June 9, 2016

Below is an updated contact list received from NHS England Yorkshire & Humber (North) Area Team. Please destroy any old lists. This updated list was not received until May 2016 and was attached to another email regarding bank holiday notifications – hence inadvertently missed by our office so apologies.

In addition to this contact list please note the following in relation to Summary Care Records access and requests for the addition of SCR roles to Smart Cards for those pharmacies who have or are intending to attend one of the SCR face to face briefing sessions provided by Midlands and Lancashire CSU in June 2016. See email dated 31.5.16 entitled Summary Care Record – Training Events sent to all community pharmacies in the Humber area.

eMBED took over the RA responsibilities, when the Yorkshire and Humber CSU disbanded on 31st March 2016.

The new e-mail address to contact eMBED your local Registration Authority (RA) for Smart Cards is

If a user’s smartcard is faulty, lost etc. and\or needs replacing, then the request could go either via their own organisation or directly to eMBED. It depends what arrangements the head office has agreed with their pharmacies.

However, if the request is to have SCR roles added to smartcards, for SCR access only, this is managed by Midlands and Lancashire CSU who provided those pharmacies with the face to face training in June 2016 and they can be contacted using

Pharmacy organisations who are providing their own SCR training should contact their own organisation as we understand they are compiling their own smartcard lists and sending them directly to HSCIC to action the SCR access roles on their employees smart cards. See email dated 31.5.16 entitled Summary Care Record – Training Events sent to all community pharmacies in the Humber area for further details on which organisations are providing their own SCR training.
