Inverclyde Pharmacy First Pilot: What proof is required that a patient is registered with an Inverclyde GP practice?

  • Many patients will be known to the pharmacy and therefore their registered GP will be included in the PMR.
  • If the patient is not known, the pharmacy staff should ask which GP practice the patient is registered with and whether they have any evidence of that, eg repeat prescription slip.
  • The pharmacy staff should add a note of the patient’s GP practice to their PMR to confirm the basis for them accessing extended MAS.
  • Contractors will be able to register people who say they are registered with an Inverclyde GP practice even if they cannot provide proof.
  • There will be post verification checks of activity, registration levels and capitation payments.
