Supporting dispensing practices with ProScript Connect

As the only dispensary management provider to cater for the whole of the UK, we’re passionate about making sure dispensing doctors have the right support.

Product updates

Primary care

We’ve enabled paramedic prescribing in England, improving patient experience by providing faster access to medicine and care. Allowing paramedics to quickly and safely prescribe will also reduce the demand on GPs and other prescribers.

We’ve also developed a new SMS template for both video and telephone consultations which will be released in 9.7.12. This will give practices the option to send texts to patients confirming their appointment and reminding them they don’t have to attend surgery.

Community pharmacy 

With the help of the newly acquired Pinnacle Healthcare, ProScript Connect now has direct integration into the PharmOutcomes Platform. This allows Pharmacists to conduct services like the COVID-19 Shielded patient check, and provides 1-click access to the Summary Care Record.

Real Time Exemption Checking is going through the final stages of sign off with NHS Digital. This enhanced ProScript Connect functionality will allow sites in England to obtain digital verification of a patient's exemption. This removes the need of the pharmacist to obtain proof of exemption directly from patients, and speeds up the payment process.
