Have you used electronic prescriptions yet? Escripts are easy to use and reduce the chances of you misplacing your scripts (unless you loose your phone!). Your doctor sends you a QR barcode via sms or email, instead of printing out your scripts. This is particularly handy for Telehealth appointments and when you are travelling!
This is how it works…..
- During your consultation your doctor will send you an sms or email you your script. It will appear as a QR barcode called a ‘token’. You will get a separate token for each medication prescribed.
- Take the token (on your smart phone) to your pharmacist for them to scan. You may also be able to email it to your pharmacist also.
- If your scripts has repeats a new sms or email we be sent to you when you get your medicine.
