Nadine Dorries – 2020 Comments on Digital Prescribing Systems

The comments made by Nadine Dorries, the Minister for Patient Safety, on 18 November 2020.

We are determined to make the NHS the safest healthcare system in the world. The introduction of digital prescribing systems has helped us reduce potentially deadly medication errors and save our hard-working staff valuable time, enabling them to dedicate their full attention and care to patients.

As we enter what is set to be a challenging winter, the best way we can continue to protect patients and staff is if we all work together and continue to follow the national restrictions to suppress the virus.
