Update on Schedule 2 & 3 Controlled Drugs and EPS

May 20, 2015

The update below on Schedule 2 & 3 Controlled Drugs and EPS has been published at http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/eps/news.

Controlled Drugs and EPS – Legislation due to come into effect on 1 July is just the first step

Legislation will come into force on 1 July 2015 to allow controlled drugs listed under schedules 2 and 3 to be prescribed and dispensed using EPS.

However, it should be noted that although this means using EPS for Schedule 2 & 3 controlled drugs will be legal, it will be some time later that it becomes technically possible as all EPS enabled dispensing system suppliers have to amend their systems before a GP system (which also need amending) can prescribe to a nominated dispenser. The HSCIC will be assuring supplier systems conform technically to legislative change requirements.
