This month’s edition focuses on new medicines for Alzheimer’s disease and our forthcoming evaluation report looking at the potential impact to the North of England, and our recent Medicines Value Update on Metformin 1 g Instant Release Tablets. It also includes information on some key medicines availability issues, the dates of our upcoming demo and Q&A sessions on RDTC reports, publications, and resources, and another in the series of “Meet the Team” where you can get to know the people behind the work we do.
