The Department does not yet have a confirmed date for the revised FP10 (National Health Service prescription form) to be in circulation. The NHS Business Services Authority has undertaken research with patients and pharmacy staff to update and re-design the form. The final layout has yet to be agreed and NHS Digital is carrying out work in order to make corresponding changes to the Electronic Prescription Service.
