Best practice on dating prescription pads

It has been noted that using the abbreviation “20” instead of “2020” allows the date to be modified. For example, 25 March 2020 written as 25/03/20 could be changed to 25/03/2019 or 25/03/2018 and so on. 

It therefore would be prudent to write dates as xx/xx/2020 for the following 12 months until 2021.
