    An estimated 237 million medication errors occur in the NHS in England every year. In March 2017, the World Health Organisation launched its third global patient safety challenge, ‘Medications without harm’, with the aim of reducing severe avoidable medication-related harm by 50% in five years. Medicines safety is a key focus of the CQC's regulatory work with trusts, aligning with its ‘Safety through learning’ strategy and commitment to help reduce avoidable harm. Between May and July 2021, the CQC carried out a review of medication safety in 95% of England’s NHS trusts. They spoke w

    Pharmacists will be allowed to write prescriptions under plans reportedly being considered by England's Health Secretary Sajid Javid. Mr Javid last month vowed the Government will "do a lot more" to ensure GPs see more patients face-to-face following complaints from the public. The proposals would see more prescriptions provided through pharmacies and hospitals for routine illnesses to allow doctors more time to see patients in person, according to The Sunday Times. GPs will also reportedly be able to pass off bureaucratic processes such as providing supporting medical evidence

    Results found that of the 20, 758 prescriptions reviewed, 3375 interventions were made, CPs spent 3.5 h per day on direct patient care, reviewed 10.3 patients per day and required 22.5 min per review. In addition, there was no correlation found between the presence of electronic prescribing in critical care and any intervention rate, concluding that a CP is essential for safe and optimised patient medication therapy and that services should be appropriately staffed to ensure sufficient time for prescription review and maximal therapy optimisation.

    A pharmacist-led, new digital intervention that improves patient safety when prescribing medication in general practice reduced rates of hazardous prescribing by more than 40%, 12 months after it had been introduced to 43 GP practices in Salford, finds a new study. Due to its success, plans are underway to roll it out across Greater Manchester. Prescribing and medication are one of the biggest causes of patient safety incidents and the third WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge is focussed on Medication without Harm. The SMASH intervention addresses this. It was developed by researchers at

    The procedure describes immediate action to ensure patient safety, grading of errors (where appropriate) and longer term actions to ensure that individuals, team, group and organisation can learn from errors. This policy is specifically written for all registered staff involved in the prescribing, dispensing, administering or monitoring of medication. The policy is also relevant for managers of such staff and gives instruction for managing staff who have been involved in a medication error.

    Pharmacies are warning people are at risk of not getting the flu jab unless an urgent decision is made over the winter vaccination programme. The Company Chemists’ Association, which represents large pharmacy groups, told HSJ the government and NHS England need to “urgently” clarify how many people it wants vaccinated for flu this year, as well as making changes to regulations. An expanded and successful winter vaccine programme is seen as key to avoiding potentially catastrophic demand for hospital beds, with flu demand coinciding with covid-19 surges. Malcolm Harrison, chief e

    An 'expanded workforce' will be delivering flu and a potential COVID-19 vaccine, under proposals unveiled by the Government today. The three-week consultation also focuses on a proposal of mass vaccinations against COVID-19 using a yet-to-be-licensed vaccine, if one becomes available this year. The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is hoping new legislation could come into effect by October, ahead of the winter season. The consultation proposes to amend the Human Medicine Regulations 2012 to "expand the workforce legally allowed to administer vaccines under NHS and loc

    Following four deaths and more than 300 incidents with steroid replacement therapy involving patients with adrenal insufficiency in the past two years, patients at risk of adrenal crisis will be issued with a steroid emergency card. All adults with primary adrenal insufficiency (AI) will be issued an NHS steroid emergency card to support early recognition and treatment of adrenal crisis, a National Patient Safety Alert has said. The cards will be issued by prescribers — including community pharmacists — from 18 August 2020. AI is an endocrine disorder, such as Addison’s disease,

    From July, hospitals will be able to refer patients who would benefit from extra guidance around new prescribed medicines to their community pharmacy. Patients will be digitally referred to their pharmacy after discharge from hospital. The NHS Discharge Medicines Service will help patients get the maximum benefits from new medicines they’ve been prescribed by giving them the opportunity to ask questions to pharmacists and ensuring any concerns are identified as early as possible. This is part of the Health Secretary’s ‘Pharmacy First’ approach to ease wider pressures on A&Es and
