Healthmail can be used to transfer prescriptions to pharmacies electronically without the need for a signed paper copy, for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis. The majority of pharmacies are already registered with Healthmail, those who are not can register in the Registration menu above. We would advise GP practices to confirm Healthmail addresses with their local pharmacies. A full directory of addresses is available in your Healthmail account by clicking on the People tab. Support is available to all users, details at this link https://www.healthmail.ie/support.cfm
Healthmail, secure clinical email, is a service that allows health care providers to send and receive clinical patient information in a secure manner. Users are issued with @healthmail.ie email accounts and this will allow them to communicate patient identifiable clinical information with clinicians in primary and secondary care.
A list of hospitals and health care agencies securely connected to Healthmail is available here: https://www.ehealthireland.ie/A2I-HIDs-Programme/Healthmail
