Diabetes UK information prescriptions will be automatically available to practices using Vision from 2 April 2015.
Information prescriptions consist of one page of personalised information for patients on the topics of high HbA1c, high blood pressure or bad cholesterol. If a patient is above the NICE target levels for safe blood pressure, HbA1c or cholesterol, the healthcare professional will be prompted to print out an information prescription for the patients.
Information prescriptions are short, easy to understand and clinically accurate. They are designed to help people with diabetes understand, engage with and improve on their health targets.
