Exemptions and switching webinar now on-demand

Exemptions and switching webinar now on-demand

January 23, 2019

Almost 400 people tuned in to a recent webinar on prescription charge exemptions and switching co-hosted by PSNC and the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA), and community pharmacy contractors can now access an online recording.

During this webinar, the presenters outlined the different exemptions from the prescription charge, including the evidence needed to prove eligibility, and explained how the declaration process varies between paper and electronic prescriptions. This was followed by details of why prescriptions are switched and how this affects pharmacy payments, as well as top tips on how to make sure switching isn’t a problem in your pharmacy. The presenters also answered related questions at the end of the webinar.

So, if you want to brush up on your exemption checking skills, watching this webinar may provide some useful training.

Some of the feedback we have received so far:

“The webinar was useful, well presented and well received.” – Pharmacy Manager

“Very informative and applicable. Also very interesting.” – ACT

“Clear delivery and great as more convenient than face to face sessions.” – Pharmacist
