GMMMG Approved Shared Care Guidelines

On this page you will find all the shared care protocols that have been approved by the GMMMG.  All SCPs should still be approved by the Trust Drug and Therapeutics Committee’s and their local CCG.

Shared care protocols that are past their review date or have been superseded by a new version/change in RAG status can be found on the Shared Care Guideline Archive pages.

Shared Care Protocols with a NEW flag or UPDATED flag may be subject to a lag period to allow for commissioning approval and implementation by Trusts/CCGs. Please check with your individual Trust or CCG.

The GMMMG agreed process for requesting/accepting shared care for individual patients can be found here

Standard wording for consultants requesting the shared care of an individual patient can be found here. This form can be inserted into clinic/discharge letters to the GP following an outpatient or inpatient consultation.

GPs should respond to the request for shared care within 14 days of receipt. A standard response form can be found here. If shared care is not accepted then a reason must be provided in the response.
