Suspension on requirement for patient signature on dental forms extended
The government has confirmed that the exemption on patient prescription signing will be extended by three months.
The Department of Health and Social Care have announced that patients will not have to sign dental forms up until 30 June 2021.
Last November, the government enforced the move in a bid to reduce the transmission rate of COVID-19.
It was initially set to last for five months up until 31 March 2021.
The measure suspends the need for patients to provide their signature on dental, prescription and ophthalmic forms.
