Medicines Optimisation

Medicines are the most common healthcare intervention and they account for 15-20% of Northamptonshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) expenditure. The CCGs’ Prescribing and Medicines Management Team (P&MMT) is responsible for making best use of available resources to improve the health of individuals and the population as a whole. This is achieved by providing prescribing advise to healthcare professionals following review of clinical records or audit and by the production of guidance. The team comprises of Pharmacists, Pharmacy technicians,  Dietitians and a Continence Nurse who work principally in GP practices and Care Homes.
