CLEO Systems, part of the IC24 Group has been listed as an approved supplier of its urgent care electronic prescription service

CLEO Systems has been named as an approved IT supplier to primary care services as part of the NHS GP IT Futures framework. The new procurement process is designed to support the delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan and framework for GP contract reform by supplying IT systems and services to the GP market in England. A total of 69 organisations have been named as successful suppliers to provide GP IT systems within the UK primary care settings, subject to successfully completing the assurance process.

CLEO Systems provides urgent primary care software solutions, for NHS 111 and clinical assessment services and has now been listed as an approved provider of its urgent care CLEO Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) system.

CLEO Systems introduced the module earlier this year to allow clinicians in its urgent care services to issue prescriptions electronically, making the service more efficient, safer, and removing the need to fax prescriptions to pharmacies.

The EPS module is built into CLEO, which is an IC24 group clinical system. IC24 first designed CLEO in the early 1990s, and is the only urgent care provider to have developed its own clinical system.

David Brown, Chief Information Officer, said: "We are really pleased to have been named as an IT supplier on the new framework. As an experienced software supplier to the urgent care market and our innovative approach to interoperability and systems design combined with the standards set within the framework helps us to continue to improve quality, safety and efficiency across services. That is good news for everyone."
