A new electronic prescription service in Wales has entered the live testing phase after working with a number of NHS partners.
The first award of grants has been made to two digital community pharmacy system suppliers by the Community Pharmacy System Innovation Fund in Wales.
The service will create a faster and more secure process for clinicians to prescribe and dispense medication, the Department of Health and Social Care said.

Eight GP practices will trial the latest stage of NHS Digital’s electronic prescription service programme before the end of 2018.
All 1,311 GP surgeries in the capital can now use the electronic prescription service (EPS) to send prescriptions to pharmacists.
Use of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is being rolled out nationally across urgent care settings following a successful pilot.
