Rushport has worked with Pharmacy Mentor to produce the only website which meets the regulatory requirements and provides the services detailed in our Standard Operating Procedures

In our October news post we highlighted the changes in the Regulations coming for every pharmacy contractor, big or small, who operate a distance selling pharmacy. At that time we also realised that none of the current website providers were able to provide our clients with a template website that took account of the regulatory changes and incorporated the requirements of the Standard Operating Procedures that we supply as part of our service on making application to the NHS for new distance selling pharmacies.

The new Regulations state as follows:

28C “An NHS pharmacist (P) in respect of distance selling premises must ensure that P has a website for use by the public for the purpose of accessing pharmaceutical services from those premises, on which there is an interactive page, clearly promoted to any user of the website when they first access it, which provides public access to a reasonable range of up to date materials that promote healthy lifestyles by addressing a reasonable range of health issues.

This regulation comes into effect on April 1st, 2021.

We are delighted to announce that we have worked with to produce a website which complies with the regulatory requirements as well as the requirements of the Standard Operating Procedures. No other pharmacy website provider offers this and we advise all our client's, past, current and future, to check with Pharmacy Mentor to make sure that they have a compliant website.
