Scanning Prescriptions

We have introduced a scanning function to the Prescriptions screen to allow you to quickly and easily locate prescriptions to dispense. Prescriptions can be scanned with a barcode scanner or if no scanner is available you can manually enter the prescription Universally Unique Identifier (UUID).

Scanning a Barcode

To scan a barcode:

  • If you scan a prescription that has not been downloaded to Pharmacy Manager, the prescription downloads from the NHS Spine and displays on the prescription list:

    Note - If the list is sorted the prescription displays in the list according to the sort criteria.
  • If you scan a prescription that is already downloaded, Pharmacy Manager filters the prescription list by the scanned UUID number, the appropriate prescription displays and is selected:

  • Scan the selected prescription again to start the dispensing process:
