Scottish Pharmacy Awards 2014 – Prescribing Efficiency Team

Congratulations to the Practice Pilot Prescribing Project (PPPP) team who won the award for Innovation in Prescribing Quality at the Scottish Pharmacy Awards 2014. The PPPP project was developed to support delivering prescribing improvements in up to four local GP practices in Forth Valley.These practices were those reported to be in the top 20% most expensive average cost per patient figures. The project aimed to increase priority and focus on prescribing in the practice as a contribution to quality, safety and cost-effectiveness – for patients, and to generate savings as a function of effective, fair and equitable prescribing.
