    Many patients are being prescribed unnecessary and even harmful treatments, a new report warns. The review, in England, suggests one-tenth of items dispensed by primary care are inappropriate or could be changed. Around 15% of people take five or more medicines a day - some are to deal with the side-effects of the others. The government is appointing a prescribing tsar to help with the issue and stop waste. Overprescribing can happen when: a better alternative is available but not given the medicine is appropriate for a condition but not the individual patient

    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.

    Some High Street pharmacies in England will start vaccinating people from priority groups on Thursday, with 200 providing jabs in the next two weeks. Six chemists in Halifax, Macclesfield, Widnes, Guildford, Edgware and Telford are the first to offer appointments to those invited by letter. But pharmacists say many more sites should be allowed to give the jab, not just the largest ones. More than 2.6 million people in the UK have now received their first dose. Across the UK, the target is to vaccinate 15 million people in the top four priority groups - care home residents and wo

    The NICE 2010 guidance (CG92) requires that all adult hospital inpatients undergo a VTE risk assessment (RA) using a standardised national VTE RA template – upon admission, again 48 hours later, and whenever the patient’s clinical condition changes. Based on the national template, clinicians at Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust (CHUFT) pioneered an electronic VTE RA tool that enables the assessment to be completed in 30 seconds.
