Using PharmOutcomes to Record Supervisions

Both Calderdale and Bradford supervisions are recorded and claimed on PharmOutcomes.

Step 1

Register the client in the Supervised Consumption- Registration Service.

This only needs to be completed once for each client.  Subsequent supplies are made under the Supervised Consumption- Supervision Service which will look up the client details from this registration stage.


Step 2

At the end of each dispensing episode, i.e. last day of dispensing/completion of dispensing from a FP10 MDA, the days that the medication was supervised should be recorded on PharmOutcomes. As the recording is triggered at the completion of a script this will allow pharmacies to record the necessary data and then to safely file the script ready for submission to the PPD.


Next to each date you need to record the action taken.  It is important that the action taken is recorded as below:


PharmOutcomes entry



Medication supervised as per prescription


Take home dose

Not supervised as dose supplied on a previous day


Did not attend

Script indicated supervision but client did not attend pharmacy

Refused supply

Script indicated supervision, client attended pharmacy but was refused supply

New prescription issued

New script was issued to replace existing script


Prescription complete

Script was for less than 14 days.  Mark all days not covered by the script with this option.


Choosing the supervised option against a date will generate a claim.  Ensure that supervised is recorded next to a date only when the script indicated a supervision AND the client came to collect the medication AND the dose was supervised.


Supervisions should be recorded in a timely fashion onto PharmOutcomes (i.e. on the last day of dispensing).
