The Plymouth event focused on the outcomes of the recent MUR audit and the process for hospital discharge MURs; the Torbay group looked at the new requirements to meet Information Governance standards and debated the proposed GP LES in Torbay to reduce prescribing costs; primarily through branded generic prescribing switches; the North Devon group discussed the implications of the recent CHUMs report on medication errors in nursing and residential care homes as well as local problems experienced by pharmacists relating to hospital discharge arrangements and ways that community pharmacists could work with GPs to reduce prescribing costs. Notes from the forums can be viewed here. The dates of future locality forums can be found on the LPC event page.
