Improved dashboard to help optimise the use of medicines
Medicines play a vital role in improving people’s lives but up to 50% of medicines are not taken as intended by the prescriber, resulting in wasted resources and poor outcomes for patients.
In 2014 NHS England launched its medicines optimisation dashboard to help inform local discussions about how to improve patient outcomes and get better value from our medicines spend. Since then it has been evaluated and modified based on what commissioners, prescribers and other healthcare providers want to see. Visit the new and improved dashboard to explore how you can use it to optimise medicines use for patients.
