“NHSE has agreed to support (and as such endorse) the ePrescribing toolkit for two years from 29.8.2018.  The information resource has proven invaluable in supporting national work to accelerate the uptake of ePrescribing and with the recent announcement of further funding wishes to ensure that it is available for Trusts now starting implementation.  It has been directly referenced as an information source to be used in the ePrescribing prospectus. An NHSE workshop held on 29.8.2018, facilitated by UoE, has provided further insight as to how the toolkit can evolve moving forward.”
