Guidance on Structured Medication Reviews

Yesterday, guidance on SMRs was published and can be found at:


https://www.england.nhs.uk/publication/structured-medication-reviews-and-medicines-optimisation-2021-22/


This updated guidance sets out the changes required to the service from April 2021, as per the requirements set out in the 2021/22 Network Contract Directed Enhanced Service (DES) Specification; which states that Primary Care Networks must have due regard to this guidance when delivering the service.


In line with this, as part of the of the pharmacy care homes group for London, Lelly and colleagues have been working on some tools that may help to support SMRs locally.
