Roll out of RTEC functionality – which is not available from any PMR provider other than the Analyst solution – started this morning, Monday 30th September 2019.

Real Time Exemption Checking has been developed by Positive Solutions in collaboration with NHS Digital and NHSBSA with the support of PSNC and other pharmacy stakeholders. The functionality is a core part of Analyst PMR and allows Analyst to check whether a patient presenting an EPS2 prescription has a known exemption. The service is limited to England only and will not work for paper scripts.

NHSBSA have supported Positive Solutions customers with a communications pack for pharmacy teams and customers. Additional information is available from and from the NHSBSA website at

Technical support for RTEC is available from the PSL Service Desk, Monday to Friday 0830 – 1830hrs and Saturday 0830 -1700hrs. Telephone 01257 235940 or email
