Clanwilliam is excited to be delivering EPS for our customers in Wales

Clanwilliam are excited to be supporting the delivery of Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) in Wales with RxWeb.  We have now entered the testing phase to support the programme.

On-site testing of RxWeb is taking place at Sully Pharmacy and MW Phillips in Cadoxton, Barry, the pharmacies that will be going live alongside Sully GP surgery.

Jenny Pugh-Jones, DHCW’s lead for e-prescriptions, said:

“We’re delighted to see Clanwilliam supporting the delivery of electronic prescribing in Wales and we welcome them as the latest pharmacy system supplier to reach this stage.

“As we have already seen from early adopter live test sites, e-prescriptions are making a big impact, helping to transform the way GP practices work and offering a more convenient service for patients.”

Eileen Byrne, Clanwilliam’s Managing Director, said:

“Canwilliam is excited to be delivering EPS for our customers in Wales, and the benefits it will bring to both them and their patients. Our aim over the last few years has been to free up time for pharmacy staff through innovation, and we see the introduction of EPS as the enabler for this.”

Cari-Anne Quinn, Life Sciences Hub Wales Chief Executive, said:

“We’re thrilled to see Clanwilliam joining the ranks of pharmacy system suppliers advancing electronic prescribing in Wales. This collaborative effort underscores our collective dedication to leveraging technology for improved healthcare outcomes and sustainability.”

The service enables GPs and prescribers in Wales to send prescriptions digitally to the patient’s nominated community pharmacy, without the need for a green paper prescription form. This makes the prescribing and dispensing of medicines safer and easier for patients and healthcare staff.

To compliment this, our Welsh customers will also get the benefit of many pieces of functionaity not previously available in he region. To drive further efficiencies, we will also be delivering our One-Click and Clinical Checking functionality, which provide huge time savings and automated clinical checks.

We were delighted to be exhibiting at the first Wales Pharmacy Show last week celebrating these huge advancements for pharmacy in Wales and the launch of our new features in the region.

Electronic prescribing in Wales is one of four programmes and projects supported by Digital Medicines that will deliver the benefits of a fully digital prescribing approach in all healthcare settings in Wales. It will also save up to 40 million paper prescription forms from being printed each year in Wales.
