Overview

The Professional Record Standards Body is publishing a new standard in two stages to support information sharing between community pharmacists and GP practices.

The first stage of the standard is now published and details the information that should be recorded for vaccinations administered and emergency medicines supplied by community pharmacists.

The second stage, due for publication in spring 2019, will detail information that needs to be recorded for the following:

  • Medication reviews
  • Appliance use review
  • New medicine services
  • Digital minor illness referral scheme
  • Hospital discharge summaries to community pharmacy

Pharmacies are offering an increased range of services to support care for people in the community. It is essential that they are able to share vital information about a person's care with GP practices and other services. By doing this digitally, we can ensure that care professionals have timely access to relevant information, leading to better, safer and more personalised care.

The first part of the standard has been published in collaboration with NHS Digital and the Royal College of Physicians Health Informatics Unit. It has been developed with clinical leadership provided by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Royal College of General Practitioners, as well as other professionals, including pharmacists and GPs, to ensure the right information is recorded.
