If your practice dispenses its own medication, you can create and print labels for them using Semble consultation notes.

Note: To create your own dispensed medication labels, you must have a role assigned to you that gives you editing permissions for Patients and Consultations. For more information on roles, see here.

Create a Dispensed Medication Label

You can create your own dispensed medication label, from consultation notes:

1. Start creating a consultation note as you normally would. For information on how to do this, see here.

2. Click the Medication tag at the bottom of the consultation notes.

3. Fill out the medication details as you normally would.

4. Tick the Medication has been dispensed box.

5. Enter a Batch number and Expiry date for the medication.

6. Click Save. The Consultations page refreshes and the new consultation note appears in the list.

7. Make sure the consultation note that you've created is selected, then click the Print label (dispensed) button on the right-hand side:

A PDF opens in a new tab.

8. Download or print the PDF as you normally would. Note: All labels are printed 7.061cm x 3.351cm.

The dispensing label now displays the patient name, medication quantity, dosage instructions, dispensing date and the medication name.
