On behalf of the GMMMG Medicines Safety Group, we now seek comments on draft Communication Standards for Opioid Medicines Prescribed at Discharge.

The draft document has been developed to support safe prescribing of opioids by improving and standardising the information communicated from secondary care to primary care when patients are discharged from hospital with an opioid medicine for pain management. The document has been developed by a task and finish group on behalf of the GM Medicines Safety Group. The document has been reviewed by members of the task and finish group, Medicines Safety Group, and has been circulated via the chief pharmacists group for comments.

This consultation will run for six weeks and closes at 5pm on Thursday 27th June 2024. To take part, visit the consultations page.
