What records do I need to keep in the pharmacy?

The signed order needs to be retained for two years from the date of supply or an entry made into the Prescription-Only-Medicine (POM) register. Even where the signed order is retained it is good practice to make a record in the POM register for audit purposes. In line with normal record keeping requirement an entry in the POM register must include:

  • Date the POM was supplied
  • Name, quantity and where it is not apparent formulation and strength of POM supplied
  • Name and address, trade, business or profession of the person to whom the medicine was supplied

The purpose for which it was sold or supplied.
