Responsive image

As from the 1st September it is no longer a contractual requirement that written consent is obtained from patients prior to the provision of Advanced Services in England. This change applies to the Flu Vaccination Service, Medicines Use Reviews (MUR), the New Medicine Service (NMS) and Appliance Use Reviews (AUR).
Instead, for these services, verbal consent can be obtained and a record of that made in the pharmacy’s clinical record for the service. For further details follow the link to our newsletter below
