Upon receiving feedback from some Participating Service Providers (PSPs) concerning the continuity supply of drugs for Programme patients, we are pleased to inform you that the orderable quantity for the following three Programme Drugs will be increased with effect from 23 October 2020. You may access the drug ordering platform on eHRSS to check the updated balance.

Drug Item Calculation Basis for the Orderable Quantity
Famotidine Tablet 20mg From 20mg daily to 20mg BD
Metformin HCI Tablet 500mg From 500mg TDS to 1000mg BD
Amlodipine (Besylate) Tablet 5mg From 5mg daily to 7.5mg daily

Please be reminded that the orderable quantities of Programme Drugs are varied by the no. of enrolled patients prescribed with the drug item. In this regard, timely input of prescription records in the GOPC PPP Profile is essential for you to be able to see the most updated quantity of drug that could be ordered.
