Question dispensing doctors quality scheme

Has anybody signed up for this? If so, what are you doing about producing SOPS.Is anyone prepared to share theirs with us. I know most of them will be individual to practices but it would be nice not to have to re-invent the wheel totally. I am fully prepared to share what we have.

Regards

Lisa

Many Practices have already signed up, details have been available since the beginning of the year. The main problems are with getting the DRUM (dispensary madication reviews) done before the end of March if you are a large dispensing practice as you have to achieve 7.5% of your dispensing list (actual patients on the list). The patient groups to be reviewed have to be agreed with your Pharmacy advisor at the PCT. The patients can be reviewed by the nurse or doctor, provided they cover the criteria in the schedule. The SOP are fairley straight forward to do. The DDA have some templates, does Surelines and a few of the drug companies. If you would like further advice or help, I am happy to oblige.

I have attached my complete dispensary protocol procedures. Some pages will not transfer but it is still very useable. Good luck and when I have written an update for DRUM reviews I will add it.

Karen,

That is incredibly helpful, thank-you. I am having a really hard time seeing the point of DRUMs, as opposed to other medication reviews. Really, I think the way to do it is to incorporate them into other consultations -- seeing a dispensing patient, OK then run through the DRUM checklist.

Is that what you're doing, or are you calling people in especially?

Best,

David

Surely what you do is print out the required number of copies of the table on P.19, stick them on the GP and nurse desks and then once they are all filled in, that's that. Scan them into the notes and Read code and you're laughing, aren't you?
