The Health Secretary will signal the end of written prescriptions today.

Jeremy Hunt is to unveil plans for a £260million system that will dispense drugs electronically and, he says, prevent needless deaths.

At least 11 people died in the NHS last year because they were given the wrong drugs or incorrect doses.
