The DDA has created a poster to support dispensaries with patients using NHS digital services.

The poster explains that services are now available to help patients arrange a consultation with a GP and order repeat
prescriptions using the Internet and mobile phone apps.

It also emphasises that dispensing patient can always continue to choose to get your medication from your usual surgery – even if they have started to use an online pharmacy to supply your prescription.

Free, printed versions of the poster will be available at the DDA  2018 annual conference for attending DDA members, along with free copies of the 2019 DDA guidance: quality in practice.

Register now to book your free place at the 2018 DDA annual conference.

Visit the library of DDA member resources to download the NHS digital services poster and a letter to send to patients about using digital services.

Visit the Dispensary guidance FAQ section for advice on speaking to patients about agressive marketing by online pharmacies.
