“Electronic Repeat Dispensing has dramatically changed our practice. Receptions staff spend less time dealing with prescriptions and routine repeats and batch prescriptions are much quicker, allowing us to spend more time with patients."
Convenient for patients
Electronic Repeat Dispensing saves patients time as they don’t need an appointment for each new prescription and their medication is ready at the pharmacy when they arrive.
It is also useful for emergency scripts such as antibiotics for housebound patients. We can prescribe them and call the pharmacist who will dispense and deliver.
It works particularly well for seven day prescribing and dosette box patients. It means we are not printing reams of paper and having to sign as many scripts.
