Prescribing support newsletters aim to inform readers of work done by the unit and work in progress, to help tailor local work plans and highlight any ‘topical’ issues in prescribing or medicines management.
If you have any suggestions for future topics for the newsletter, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This month’s edition covers the RDTC’s Climate Emergency declaration, Pill Swallowing – a skill for life, Metolazone preparations and safety considerations, and the second in the series of “Meet the Team” where you can get to know the people behind the work we do. We also cover the Price concessions and the Discount Deduction scheme, World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, and a guide to the COVID-19 autumn booster. There is also information on the changes to the Medicines Information Service, and some key medicines availability issues.
This month’s edition covers new labelling requirements for sennosides, changes to the NHS community pharmacy contract, National guidance on blood testing following shortages, and inclisiran in primary care. It also continues a series of spotlight articles on our prescribing data reports; this month takes a look at our prescribing bulletins.
