Medicines Optimisation Team
Daniel Watts – Medicines Management Pharmacist
July 2014
Engagement Scheme 2014-15 - draft
Prescribing element (70p per patient)
Practices in partnership with the MMT will be required to identify key areas of work in
order to promote the safe and efficient use of medicines and budgetary management.
In addition, the practices will also be required to utilise ScriptSwitch ® and familiarise
themselves with the GMMMG Formulary.
The Medicines Management Scheme is intended to provide a more holistic approach
to optimising the medicines use for patients within the CCG.
It will comprise of 3 main areas which will be supported by the Medicines Management
Team (MMT).
Medicines optimisation of an agreed high risk patient group
Practice to work with the MMT to review a mutually agreed high risk patient group identified within
care homes or where this is not applicable could include housebound patients or QOF
exempted patients.
Quality areas focusing on Respiratory and Atrial Fibrillation (AF)
Respiratory will be a key CCG theme and the MMT will continue to work with the practices to share
the learning identified.
AF – each practice to work with the MM pharmacist to identify patients with AF who should be
considered for anticoagulation and ensure the safe introduction of the newer oral anticoagulant
agents where appropriate.
QIPP medicines management initiatives
Practices to continue to work with the MMT on outlying MM QIPP areas. These will include:
 Diabetes and the safe introduction of new drugs, appropriate BGT usage and choice of
meters/strips and a review of insulin analogue prescribing.
 National MM QIPP areas
 Waste campaign
Achievements
Scriptswitch – South practices saved £312k in 13-14 as a direct result of switches accepted
and information messages being adhered to e.g. Red drug & Do Not Prescribe messages.
“Hands on support” – The Medicines Management team realised £161k in 13-14 by
working with practices and offering hands on support to implement cost savings and switches
missed by Scriptswitch.
Minor Ailment Scheme
•
•
•
•
The Greater Manchester scheme is designed to allow patients registered with a GP in a
participating CCG to access the scheme from any pharmacy in GM that provides the scheme.
This helps to eliminate cross border issues and provides a consistent service for patients in
Greater Manchester.
All medications included in the formulary are evidenced based and align to the Greater
Manchester Medicines Management Group Formulary.
Patients can self refer into the scheme which eliminates the need for the patient to visit the
practice initially.
The scheme will be live from end July 2014.
Conditions treated under M.A.S.
• Allows the pharmacist to provide any over the counter medication
from an agreed formulary for any condition that product is licenced
for.
• This prevents patients being excluded due to an oversight in the
inclusion/exclusion criteria. Though not an exhaustive list the
scheme covers treatment for the following conditions:
Constipation
Indigestion / Heartburn
Diarrhoea
Haemorrhoids
Scabies
Sore Throat
Nasal Congestion (Infant)

AF, supporting the decision-making process.
• case-study sessions with a local specialist to discuss best practice in managing this patient group,
plus follow review of patient lists to identify measurable outcome.

Wasted Medicines Campaign.
The South Manchester CCG Plan
Community pharmacies – to contact patients to check which
items are required each time and stamp this has been done.
Practices – to NOT accept prescription requests from pharmacies
which do not indicate that the patient has been contacted.
If this hasn’t been done – to contact patients themselves.
Patients – to be made more aware of repeat prescribing systems
& the consequences of waste .
STOP BLAMING EACH OTHER!!
• All parties need to work together to ensure restricted
NHS resources are used to improve health outcomes
for the patients of South Manchester and NOT going
up in smoke or flushed down the toilet!!
• Reducing waste will increase monies to invest in
future collaborative working with local Community
Pharmacies, which will benefit our local population.
• Other CCGs have taken this approach and seen
significant reductions in their prescribing cost
growth.
Greater Manchester Medicines Management Group
