Minister for Health signs regulations to assist with prescriptions during COVID-19

Minister for Health Simon Harris has signed two statutory instruments to relieve some of the pressures on our GPs, pharmacists and patients in accessing prescriptions.

The Minister signed the Medicinal Products (Prescription and Control of Supply) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 allowing for the electronic transfer of prescriptions to a pharmacy via an approved electronic system, the HSE’s Healthmail system.

In addition, the maximum period of validity of a prescription is increased from 6 months to 9 months as of the date specified on the prescription.

Some temporary changes to the way in which prescriptions can be repeated are also being introduced to enable pharmacists to ensure the continuity of care of patients without necessarily requiring a new prescription.

Minister Harris commented:

“We are asking people to stay home. We know many people will still require access to important medicines and that is why we are introducing these measures. However, I also want to remind patients and the general public not to seek supplies of medicines over and above their normal requirements. Doing so will hamper the supply of medicines for others.
“The changes we will make today will relieve the pressure on GPs and pharmacists. Crucially, it will reduce the need for people to visit their GP or pharmacy during this pandemic.
“I want to thank our healthcare staff, my department and the HSE for their work on this matter. This is a significant step and will help us in our efforts to slow the spread of this virus.”
This is welcomed news from the Minister as it makes life easier for all concerned including patients. Thank you to all who made this initiative happen.

Mr. Connolly said that the staff in Haven directly contributed to the success of Haven and he was delighted with the results of a recent Haven Staff Satisfaction Survey which confirmed that over 88% of staff are happy to work in Haven and 80% would recommend working in Haven to a friend. The results of the survey reinforced the positive impact of being in the Haven Pharmacy Group as well as the strong bonds of collegiality between the pharmacy teams. Mr. Connolly noted that the co-operative ethos of helping improve the health and well-being of patients & customers in local communities was part of the Haven DNA. He praised the teams on raising over €55,000 for charities including CRY Ireland, Beaumont Hospital, Pieta House, Childline, Temple Street Children’s Hospital, the Irish Cancer Society and Cystic Fibrosis Ireland to name just a few.

 

He concluded by extending his thanks to all the sponsors for the event – Clonmel Healthcare, KBC Bank, Perrigo, Accord Healthcare, Fitzgerald Power Accountants, GSK Ireland, Reckitt Benckiser Ireland Ltd., Uniphar Retail Services, United Drug, Fleming Medical, HMR Ireland, Parle & Hickey, iMed, Sam McLernons, Touchstore, Teva Pharmaceuticals and Azpiral – and said he looked forward to another successful year for Haven in 2020.
