£300 million?

Electronic prescriptions are already very widely used, so we are only talking about some smallish increment. So, some small proportion of prescriptions will now join the rest in being communicated to the pharmacy over the Interwebs instead of by a customer clutching a piece of paper. And this is going to save £300m?

Must be bloody expensive printer paper.
