Important:- Remove GP10 Right Hand Side Repeat Information Form Prior to Submitting to Practitioner Services
(8 December 2014)
Practitioner & Counrter Fraud Services (P&CFS) Scanning Services have noticed an increase in forms submitted for processing with the right hand side counterpart of GP10s still attached. It is highly important that the unused counterpart of the prescription form is removed as part of the dispensing process. This will then allow an uninterrupted scanning process, reducing paper jams and the likelihood of damage to the P&CFS scanners. Please only submit the prescription form for payment.
