Changes to the prescribing of nutritional products

The method of prescribing nutritional products has changed. 'One-off nominations' should now be used to send home enteral feed prescriptions to a specialist supplier by those practices using SystmOne (dispensing & non-dispensing) and some EMIS Web practices.
Practices no longer have to issue FP10s, Phase 4 tokens, or change the patient's usual pharmacy nomination as NHS England have included Homeward Pharmacy as a one-off nomination choice as shown below:

Homeward Pharmacy ODS Code FL377

A dummy post code ZE1 0AA has been created for use by all three pharmacies.

A one-off nomination will not affect future prescriptions which will still be sent to the patient’s regular nominated pharmacy.

Mid Essex CCG have produced a useful guide entitled 'One-off pharmacy nominations in SystemOne' which can be accessed by clicking on: One-off nomination guide
