    never heard of US! maybe it's a service from the old contract, you get paid extra for dispensing a script saying US? just a thought.....

      emergency supply is when you dispense without an Rx to a patient who has ran out of medication. Urgent supply is when you dispense against an Rx out of hours with the Rx marked urgent by the prescriber. There is a fee payed by the ppd for the urgent supply.

        Thanks for the info.

        Well, in Scotland they are totally different and both dont need Rx. So I was wondering how it is in England

          In England we have...
          Emergency Supply - at request of patient
          Emergency Request - prescriber phones script through and should supply NHS script with n Hours (forgotten value of n its in the MEP somewhere)
          Urgent dispensing : script marked "urgent". can claim urgent dispensing if pharmacy has to be opened specially to dispense.

          We all assumed England as we don't have the CP(US) form here.
          In Scotland as you have pointed out there is the CP(US) form where the pharmacist can supply 1 months medication provided they are satisfied it is not an abuse of the system and that patient has record of continuity of treatment. (ie treatment not stopped etc etc and all the other stuff you have to be happy about)

          CP(US) would be great in England - in theory.
          However, it would soon be used to simply bypass the 48hour wait between requesting a prescription from the GP.
          Mind you in the brave new world of EPSR2 there will be no need for all this, as patient nominations will make everything work all the time. (Wearing rose colour spectacles)

          If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.
