NICE initiative for better medicines support

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has launched a new initiative to encourage better medicines support for people who are receiving social care services in their homes.

The aim is to ensure the safe and effective use of medicines in the community, so people get the best possible outcomes with a reduced risk of medicine related harm. The campaign encourages health commissioners and local authorities to have a written agreement that sets out clear responsibilities for home-based medicines support.
