Patient exemptions: Communications toolkit for primary care teams in England

From 1 September 2021, the temporary signature suspension has been lifted. Patients, or their representatives, will again be required to sign the reverse of NHS prescription, dental and eye care forms, or tokens for prescriptions presented at the pharmacy.

The NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) has produced fresh guidance and a communications toolkit to help primary care contractors understand their legislative requirements, follow the correct procedure, and provide support to patients.

Support the campaign by downloading our resources and sharing them with your networks.
