eRx Update – December 2009

As 2009 draws to a close, we look back over the year and think about how much has been achieved. In that time, eRx has gone from being in the early stages of development to a system being rolled out nationally by 8 of the major prescribing and dispensing systems, with 9 more to come on line next year. Over the coming months we will continue to install sites, so if you are yet to register go to If you have registered, your software vendor will be in contact with you to organise your installation.

The December/January News attached gives you a further update on our progress, announcements of new vendors installing eRx and some of the key activities that will be happening next year.

Thank you to the many people who have supported eRx and have been involved in making eRx a success to this stage. We look forward to continuing to work with you in 2010 and hope you have a wonderful Christmas and safe and happy New Year.
