Abstract

Over the course of the last year, the Department of Health has looked at the use of hub and spoke dispensing systems for community pharmacy in England, a technology which some view as an inevitable extension of electronic prescription transmission in primary care. In a hub and spoke system, medicines required for a primary care prescription are put together at a remotely located warehouse and then transported to a spoke site, such as a community pharmacy, where they can be collected by the patient. The economies of scale that such a model offers support the use of robotic dispensing.
