Damian Nolan (Halton BC) and Jane Hancer (CC2i) explain the problems of administering meds and describe a new collaboration by councils to find a digital solution.
Complicated relationships exist between patients, GPs, pharmacists, hospitals, carers and family members in terms of medicine management, and getting the right meds to the right people at the right time carries high risks and costs across the health and care system
Five councils and their care partners have come together in a project brought together by CC2i, supported by LGA and match funded by NHS Digital to explore issues and difficulties as well as identifying what ‘good might look like’.
The conversation covers why the project is being undertaken, the process and timetable being followed by the five participating councils, and the benefits of the collaborative approach.
