Rochdale Smoking Cessation Service – Payment Update

Living Well are switching to PharmOutcomes™ to pay you for NRT Tier 1 products

Until now you had had to post a carbon copy of Living Well’s NRT voucher to Living Well to be paid for the NRT products you dispense to customers. You no longer need to do this from 1st November.
Instead the information you record in the Client Registration and Tier 1 NRT Supply modules of PharmOutcomes will be used to trigger payment for these NRT products.

Urgent Eyecare Service Leaflet

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CUES (COVID-19 Urgent Eye Care Service) was launched to support the pandemic. This service now supersedes the Minor Eye Condition Service (MECS)

The CUES is an extended version of the MECS service which allows remote consultation and uses IT capability to provide a digital service. In some areas, an Independent prescriber may be used to prescribe medicines for the patient.

For further details please refer to the service summary, available here

Where a medicine is required, this will normally be supplied or prescribed by the optometrist, as part of the consultation, through the issue of an NHS CUES written order. The written order is signed by the prescriber. This will be supplied by a community pharmacy of the patient’s choice.

You should only receive NHS CUES written orders from patients registered with a GP from one of the areas above (previously MECS areas).
