Serial Prescribing (SRx)

A serial prescription (SRx) is a prescription that may be supplied to patients who have a long term condition(s) and will remain valid for up to 56 weeks. There are number of key differences between a SRx and a ‘normal’ GP10. The main ones are that the form is valid for 24, 48 or 56 weeks with the prescriber specifying the dispensing interval and total quantity on the form. Items prescribed on a SRx cannot be amended; they must be cancelled. In addition, community pharmacy teams cannot endorse the paper; claims must all be electronic.
