QIPP - Medicines Management Options

The National Prescribing Centre (NPC) has published a list (PDF) of potential work areas that offer opportunities for maintaining or improving quality and enhancing value for money.

Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention or QIPP is a part of the Department of Health (DH) agenda for delivering better value for money in the NHS.

This document contains 15 areas where prescribing can be reviewed and, if considered appropriate, prioritised for local action to improve value for money.

It is also expected that the DH will launch a broad spectrum of QIPP initiatives in the late summer with there suggestions being made available now to aid future planning in PCTs and GP consortia.

Action: This document will be very useful to aid when planning future work that is intended to deliver better value for money.
