Care home staff can quickly, safely and securely order their resident’s medications online, including using their iPad.

As discussed in this news article, the Local Government Association and NHS have published guidance to help with setting up and granting authorised care home staff proxy access to their resident’s GP online services account.

Helpful guides have also been produced by Northamptonshire CCG and Coventry and Rugby CCG to take care home staff through medication ordering using EMIS (Patient Access) and SystmOne on an iPad. These are available for download below.

On 17th March 2021, we were joined by NHS colleagues who presented step-by-step instructions for using EMIS and SystmOne for medication ordering during one of our weekly iPad support webinars.
