The UK Community Pharmacy FMD Working Group has published a list of Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) IT system suppliers who will be offering an FMD IT solution. The list will be updated as additional suppliers are identified.
We recommend that pharmacy contractors use the list to start considering the offerings from their PMR supplier and other FMD IT suppliers.
A range of options are expected to be available for use in pharmacies, including FMD solutions integrated within the PMR system and standalone systems. Contractors will need to consider the usability of the different options for each pharmacy, dependent on when and where the FMD scan will be undertaken in the dispensing process, and the impact on the workflow of their pharmacy team members.
