Shirley Price Coding with GS1 standards improves patient safety

Barcoding for Safety and Service

Since 2000 when Sp went into Boots and Lothian went into Lloyds Pharmacy it has been important principle for us to have a machine readable barcode compliant
with GS1 standards on all Shirley Price essential oils and aroma products ideally on the bottle but failing that in number form on the bottle and in readable form on the carton.

Where 100 or 1000 differant essential oils cartons are received into a pharmacy store this not only assists in recording and storing the oils it helps with patient safety. It also helps us ensure you receive exactly the oil you have ordered.
