Mandatory recording implemented for all P medicines

The final phase of full mandatory recording of Pharmact Medicine as required by HSA has started from 1st Feb.


For the purchase, customers / patients are required to provide the following:

  • Name, identity card number, contact details (address, phone or email) of person to whom the medicine is dispensed
  • Purpose of treatment
The pharmacist would also be documenting any drug allergy, medical conditions and medications that patients are currently on. The medicine dispensed would also have its quantity, dose, dose frequency and expiry date captured in the electronic pharmacy system centralize to the respective pharmacy institution.
