How can you refer a patient onto the Akcea Connect service?
You will need to complete a patient registration form and a prescription (provided to the Trust by Akcea Connect service providers) and send them to the Trust pharmacy. Upon approval, they will be sent to Akcea Connect service providers to arrange the dispensing and delivery of the medication.
The patients will be given a leaflet to explain that their data will be transferred from the NHS to Akcea Connect service providers. All parties involved will have a data sharing agreement. The leaflet will also show patients where to find the privacy notices of the NHS, and Akcea Connect service providers.
