The DDA is delighted to have welcomed its 600th member to its Best Practice Facebook Group.

The group, which is only open to DDA members, is proving a valuable professional tool with questions moderated by the DDA and answered by other members and DDA Board members.

The following are just some of the recent posts:

  • What checking process do people use? Currently we use barcode scanner when entering stock, scanner then used at dispensing step as well as dispenser visually checking/picking correct meds. We then have another human check the meds before declared ready for patient. Is this second human check unnecessary?
  • If a GP takes a salbutamol inhaler and a spacer from dispensary because they want to administer it to a patient during a consultation, but they are not a dispensing patient, how would you claim for the items?
  • What subject are people doing for their DSQS audit?
  • Many dispensing practices equalise the number of scripts per clinician per month to make best use of the dispensing fee thresholds.  Is there a way to fully automate reallocation of named prescriber through SystmOne?

If you are a DDA member but not yet in this group – what are you waiting for?
