NHS England and Fareham and Gosport CCG have issued a directive stating that all patients should have nominated pharmacy and their prescription should be sent electronically. This will have a positive environmental influence in the reduction paper by 100% and it will also reduce problems with prescriptions going missing. We do not have a specific deadline for this to be achieved but as a practice, we are working on it continuously. We will be in touch with you as necessary, as this project progresses.
