A Florey allows you to send a questionnaire out to patients to gather data. The COCP Florey is used to help gather data that would be useful for a repeat prescription request of the combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP). Using the information gathered, clinicians can determine the most helpful subsequent steps in the review e.g. repeat prescription, appointment.

Please note: This Florey is only available to users who are in an area that has purchased Accurx Plus.
