Repeat dispensing pilot making good progress

July 11, 2017

North Manchester pharmacies and GP practices have been taking part in a new electronic repeat dispensing (eRD) pilot that began in April and is supported by Greater Manchester LPC and commissioners. The project is being rolled out in phases across all 36 North Manchester GP practices and their neighbouring pharmacies and aims to enhance patient care, reduce medicines waste, and save considerable time for GP practices and pharmacies.

By 13th June, 327 patients had been approved for electronic repeat dispensing following nomination by their pharmacy. The patients were from 15 GP practices.

This short briefing summarises the progress to date.
