Midlands Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust: Leading the Way in Digitising Secondary Care Prescriptions for a Greener Future

The trust, in collaboration with NHS England and Cleo, successfully deployed the electronic prescribing service as a first of type to secondary care, digitising paper processes of sending prescriptions to pharmacies. Before EPS, prescribers were hand-writing paper prescriptions, posting or delivering them, or patients often having to travel to collect. Now prescriptions are sent electronically to the patients chosen pharmacy, enabling sustainability, reducing carbon footprint from delivery, increasing patient safety, and freeing time for prescribers to see more patients in clinics.
