Medicines project delivers £11 million savings

A collaboration between hospitals and pharmacies in Cheshire and Merseyside has saved the NHS £11 million and improved patient care.

Pharmacies in the area are being notified by their local hospital when a patient is discharged who might need help understanding changes to their medicines. The initiative, called Transfer of Care Around Medicines, is improving patient safety and quality of care with a reduction in hospital readmissions.
