The Ask for ANI Codeword Scheme celebrated it’s one-year anniversary earlier this year.

The voluntary scheme was rolled out to pharmacies across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It has now been adopted by over 50% of pharmacies in the UK and over 100 official disclosures have been made.

We continue to work with partners across the UK, including pharmacy associations, to encourage more pharmacies to sign up to the scheme.
