Re: Paperlessless

Hi @Benson's Cycle

As @monty75 implied

If you pay for prescriptions you have to sign the paper that comes with the prescription meds (if you don't pay chances are pharmacist has just ticked it for you & yiu did not see te paper, but there is paper involved). Typically the medicines are in a bag (with paper prescription stapled to it) in drawers / on shelves in pharmacy ready for collection, and pharmacist refers to paper script attached to bag of meds when you collect e.g. ID question such as address which is printed on the paper
