This course is aimed at non-clinical staff in GP practices – Practice Medicines Co-ordinators - who manage the repeat prescribing process. It will help them: to improve medicines safety; to improve satisfaction for patients and staff; to reduce medicines waste; to make savings by reducing or containing costs; to become a point of contact for medicines related queries; and to work in collaboration with the Medicines Optimisation Team.
We are an NHS funded not-for-profit organisation that supports quality, optimised prescribing for patients. We produce evidence-based resources and tools for primary care commissioners, and provide a platform to share innovation across the NHS. Most of our materials are publicly available, however we also provide a range of data and intelligence tools, webinars and events for our subscribers. We also aim to engage with a broad range of stakeholders including patients and carer groups, the pharmaceutical industry and voluntary sector organisations.
