July newsletter

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 nuth.nyrdtc.rxsupp@nhs.net

This month’s newsletter covers our new website, the latest healthcare professional letter on sodium valproate, and an update on the use of chloramphenicol eyedrops in children. It also continues a series of spotlight articles on our prescribing data reports; this month take a look at our Financial Headlines.

New website launch

The RDTC are proud to share our newly updated website. The new site is streamlined to make it easier for you to see everything we produce, and find exactly what you need with a few clicks.

You can visit the site home page to find out more about all of the services hosted by the centre, or head to the Prescribing Support landing page to take a look at the new layout for our content. The new layout allows you to:

  • Click on a topic to see everything we produce in that area, from prescribing data analysis to evidence evaluation.
  • Click on “search publications” to do some finer searching, filtering outputs by topic and type to find exactly what you need.

We hope you’ll find the new layout intuitive and easy to use, but don’t hesitate to send us an email or a Twitter message if you have any problems.

You’ll need to re-register using the form at this link to download files, but the form is quick and easy.

We welcome all feedback; please get in touch at nuth.nyrdtc.rxsupp@nhs.net
