“Electronic prescribing should be the norm throughout the NHS and other healthcare providers. Separate or standalone systems for electronic prescribing systems are unlikely to provide all the safety benefits that fully integrated electronic prescribing systems offer. Electronic prescribing systems should ensure the seamless transfer of relevant clinical information, in a standard format, between pathologist, prescribing clinician and dispensing clinician. This includes immediate access to pathology test results and other clinical information relevant to prescribing, such as allergy details. Electronic prescribing systems should allow both prescribing and ‘view-only’ access by all clinicians involved with the patient, regardless of the location of clinical contact. This will be particularly important when patients are seen at home or in the community, where mobile access to an electronic prescribing system will be required.” ‘Improving the physical health of people with severe mental illness’ Royal College of Psychiatrists in partnership with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and the Royal Colleges of General Practitioners, Nursing, Pathologists, Physicians, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and Public Health England, October 2016
