Event description
The aim of these learning sessions is to raise awareness of eRD, highlight implementation resources and share learning across our systems.

About this Event

We know that whilst you are busy doing great work in general practice, it can be really challenging to keep up with new guidance and ways of working. As part of resilience efforts around COVID-19, NHS England have encouraged practices to optimise the benefits of Electronic Prescription Services (EPS) in two key ways:

• Switching patients still receiving paper prescriptions to EPS.

• Utilising electronic repeat dispensing (eRD) for suitable patients.

We will be providing a five part series which we encourage you to sign up to all of them if you can:

  • Part 1) 25 June 2020 - The benefits of eRD based on experience from GP and CCG colleague
  • Part 2) 2 July 2020 - Using eRD to drive effective care planning
  • Part 3) 9 July 2020 - eRD, System collaboration and eRD Care homes
  • Part 4) 16 July 2020 - The benefits of eRD based on experience from GP and CCG colleague (this session is repeated)
  • Part 5) 23 July 2020 - eRD and community pharmacy.

More details about each session can be found below.

Increasing eRD will have the following benefits:

✓Reducing footfall to the GP practice and to the community pharmacy, supporting social distancing in the current operating environment.

✓Reducing workload for prescribers allowing better prioritisation of resources.

✓Controlled management of the supply chain reducing the number of temporarily unavailable medicines.
