Update on Transcribing

A new SOP has been developed for use by community teams and in learning disability core units when administering medicines: Standard operating procedure for the recording and administration of medicines (previously transcribing). This replaces transcribing, a process which is no longer routinely supported within DCHS.

For community teams a new Community drug administration record card replaces the old MSRARC. An easy to follow flowchart has also been included in the SOP, but if you have any queries please contact Julia Shaw, Principal Pharmacist via email: juliashaw1@nhs.net
