Medicines

The Medicines Management Team is hosted by Surrey Downs CCG to provide a range of services to four CCGs across Surrey. The team helps to improve patient choice and safety, reducing variation and error in prescribing, and getting the best value for money drug treatments.

Many of the team are based in general practices, where they work with clinicians to make sure that the procurement and use of medicines in Surrey is in line with best practice and cutting edge research. They also commission high-cost and specialist medicines, mostly for use by the area’s hospitals.

The team monitor trends in what and how drugs are being prescribed, advising clinicians on local policy and the availability of new medicines. They also manage drug-related Individual Funding Requests.
