Finance and Information


A wide variety of reports and analysis are produced using data from our Electronic Prescribing & Medicines Administration system [EPMA] and Prescription Tracking System [PTS] applications. This information assists with improving prescribing accuracy and medicines usage, improving patient safety and reducing processing time. This helps ensure patients receive their appropriate medicines as swiftly as possible and can be discharged in timely manner.

We also use this information to monitor and record our improvements against Trustwide Key Performance Indicators.


The team support and maintain the pharmacy stock control system for the Trust including the outsourced partner, including updating drug catalogues, ensuring the labelling requirement is within agreed specifications, supporting and leading on activity in developing new opportunities within the stock control system, production of financial reports for analysis and manage the pharmacy stock checks and investigations.

The team also processes all pharmacy invoices for payment which includes querying any incorrect pricing and over-charges, resulting in approximately £1 million reclaimed back into the trust last financial year.
