Medicines optimisation looks at the overall value which prescribing delivers to patients, making sure it is implemented safely, clinically and cost-effectively. It is about ensuring people get the right choice of products, at the right time, in the most appropriate care setting and are engaged in the process by their clinical team.
Our teams across South Yorkshire work with patients and clinicians to:
  • make best use of NHS resources;
  • improve patient outcomes;
  • Support patients to take their prescribed products safely and appropriately;
  • avoid unnecessary prescribing;
  • reduce wastage of products;
  • advise on and integrate new products into treatment pathways; and
  • improve the safety of product usage.

Here you will find local prescribing information including Place level medicines commissioning:
