We hold monthly open days so our customers can come and see how we process prescriptions. We hold them at different times of the day to make it easier for people to come to them and each session lasts about three hours.

Anyone involved in sending in prescriptions for reimbursement and remuneration should find them useful, such as a pharmacist, dispensing doctor or GP who claims for personally administered items, or a dispensing appliance contractor.
