Supplier status: GP to Pharmacy CPCS Minor Illness

See which IT system suppliers currently offer the Booking and Referral Standard (BaRS) for Referrals into pharmacy (Application 5). For those still implementing the Standard in their systems you can see the status of their implementation.

As a healthcare provider, you may be interested to see whether your current IT system supplier is working towards offering this capability. Alternatively, you may want to purchase this capability from another supplier.

Where the supplier is compliant with a pre-release (alpha/beta) version, this is for first of type (pilots) only.

If a supplier is not currently listed, it means they have not engaged with the BaRS programme.
