Mo’s Medicines - Electronic Repeat Dispensing

This is the third in the 'Meet Mo' campaign series. This video sees Mo join electronic repeat dispensing which cuts time for Mo, Mo's GP and pharmacist. General Practice is under considerable demand, and repeat prescribing is a significant part of GPs’ daily work load. Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD) is an NHS service which has been shown to save GP time spent on repeat prescriptions, and to be more convenient for patients. As part of the work being done in Wessex to support the effective roll out of this valuable NHS service, Wessex AHSN has developed this short animation (the third in our meet Mo series) to help the public to be aware of the service, and its benefits. As with the past two “Mo” videos we have endeavoured to make the animation as engaging and lively as possible. The Electronic Repeat Dispensing service is intended for patients with a long-term condition, which requires repeat medicines, that do not change regularly. Their GP can authorise up to 12 months of such medicines. These prescriptions are stored electronically, and then dispensed and supplied to the patient by the patient's community pharmacist when they are needed. The patient does not have to request prescriptions from the GP during this period. To find out more about this service or to see the range of resources we have developed to support eRD see

Spread and adoption model: Webinar for AAC Rapid Uptake Products
