England – Are you ready for EPS Phase 4?

Learn how you can prepare ahead of EPS Phase 4

No prescriptions should be created with pooled GP codes. Prescriptions should be issued with actual Prescribing Codes, this is especially important with the release of EPS Phase 4, as the use of a pooled GP code prevents the creation of an EPS prescription, which can lead to delays in patients receiving their medication.

Over the next few weeks, as you add and reauthorise medication, check the Prescriber selected is an actual prescriber, not a pooled GP.
