MUR service changes

The Department of Health has implemented some changes to the regulations governing the advanced and enhanced pharmaceutical services. According to Primary Care Commissioning, the most significant change applies to the MUR service.

The new regulations came into force on the 1st September 2012 and the changes mean that pharmacists are now only required to inform GPs that an MUR has occurred if issues have been identified where the pharmacist believes the GP should be informed.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this change. The volume of MUR paperwork should reduce and any MUR paperwork received should now be more relevant and beneficial.
