    So far, so good

    Very pleased with the printer so far. Easy to set up out of the box and the set up disc (for XP)was straight forward to use (one for win 7 was also enclosed). The free additional 2 yrs warranty is also appreciated. So far the printer seems to be doing everything quietly and efficiently. To soon to comment with regards to reliability.

Prescription Printing

Experts in Prescription Printing & Repeat Prescription Printing Solutions

Brother is widely known within the Primary Care and other Healthcare services mainly for its prescription printing products such as laser printers and all-in-one (multi-function combining print, fax, copy and scan) machines and fax products.

Brother has invested a huge amount of research and development time within the area of prescription and repeat prescriptions printing solutions to eliminate the need for a separate adaptor.

For example the extensive research and testing undertaken in Japan used the actual FP10 prescription document and established Brother as the market leader in prescription printing solutions.

This enabled a broad understanding of requirements for Doctor's surgeries, consequently Brother provides an out of the box solution and eliminates the need for a prescription printing adaptor. Given that more than 80% of Doctor's surgeries within the UK, are using Brother's laser printers and all-in-one printers* and more than 1 million prescriptions are printed, every day in the UK, it's a testament to the reliability and durability of Brother's Prescription printing and document management / communication technology.

Brother's philosophy 'at your side' endorses working with customers, and it's partners, this is achieved by:
  • Offering cost effective printing and communication products to meet customer requirements
  • Providing bespoke prescription printing solutions customised to meet customers individual needs.
  • By offering support with exceptional customer support.
  • Solutions including additional universal paper trays designed specially for prescription printing straight out of the box.

  • Our range of prescription printing solutions are all fully recognised by top clinician software vendors and by working extensively with leading GP software system suppliers, such as EMIS, iSOFT, INPS, Microtest, and GPASS, to ensure Brother's laser printers and all-in-one products* are compatible with GP's prescription printing solutions systems.

    As a result, Brother laser printers and laser all-in-one products* are designed to print prescriptions and repeat prescriptions or commonly known as the FP10 (GP's or pharmacies), FP10 D (Dentists), FP10HP (Hospitals) as standard, straight out of the box, from the universal paper tray without the need for a prescription printing adaptors.

    Given that the prescription volume for the year to June 2006 increased by 5.2% per annum (to more than 728 million items) as published in the Prescription Pricing Divisions (PPA) report 'Update On Growth In Prescription Volume And Cost Year To June 2006, it is more apparent that reliable and value for money prescription printers are a minimum requirement.
