Medicines optimisation

We enable you to achieve transformation in medicines optimisation and ensure patients receive the best possible health outcomes through optimising medicines systems, prescribing, usage and safety.

  • We assess prescribing data at ICS/regional level, and identify progress, projections, barriers, and recommend solutions in prescribing/ clinical areas with the highest priorities where change can be delivered most effectively.
  • Our bespoke support is evidence-based and includes ‘how to’ guides, operating procedures, toolkits, contractual solutions, and recommendations that will unlock barriers or kick-start local progress.
  • We support cross-system engagement and consistency through formularies alignment, clinical audit, establishing/ facilitating peer networks, redesigning pathways, developing protocols and dashboards, and producing educational materials.
  • We are passionate about helping you to develop, strengthen and grow your pharmacy workforce.
  • We empower you to make the right commissioning or prescribing choices in prescription products through detailed analysis and rapid evidence reviews. In addition, we can support you with the procurement of services.
  • We have a wide team of subject matter experts in helping you to create digital and other non-digital solutions that demonstrate a balance in safety, tolerability, value, and simplicity in medicines prescribing and usage.
