If you’re a GP, we can help you with electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD). Based on our prescribing data, we’re able to provide you with NHS Numbers of patients who might be suitable for eRD. So far, we’ve supported almost 3,500 practices with data for patients receiving between 1 and 3 medicines in the last 10 or more months.
- patients receiving between one and nine regular medicines between May 2019 and May 2020
- patients receiving regular medicines for at least five months, including patients who might be on a 56-day regime
To request this dataset for patients registered at your practice, email firstname.lastname@example.org from an NHS.NET address registered to your practice.
Increasing your use of eRD in your practice means:
- reduced footfall to your practice and to the community pharmacy, supporting social distancing
- reduced workload for prescribers allowing better prioritisation of resources
- controlled management of the supply chain reducing the number of temporarily unavailable medicines
Collaboration is key to the successful implementation of eRD. Community pharmacies and GP practices should collaborate on how best to maximise eRD at locally.
If you need any support with eRD, please email email@example.com.
