One-off nomination (only available in some prescribing systems)
If the prescribing system allows; there may be the option to select a ‘one-off’ nomination for an individual prescription. This is a useful option for an acute or repeat prescription if the patient can’t use their usual nominated dispenser.
At the point of prescribing, there will be the option to choose a pharmacy that is listed in the Directory of Services (DOS). The opening times will be displayed.
A one-off nomination does not affect the patient’s regular nomination, but the one-off prescription would be affected if the regular nomination is changed before it is collected.
Please do not use one-off nomination when issuing an eRD prescription.
