NES nominated in RPS Awards 2017


The work of our Pharmacy colleagues has again been recognised by the prestigious Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s RPS Awards 2017.   

Pharmacy team members have been nominated and shortlisted for the `Excellence in Education` Award for their collaborative work with a number of Health Boards across Scotland in developing `Teach and Treat ` services. The training is multi-professional in delivery and has allowed inactive pharmacist independent prescribers to gain new skills, competencies and confidence to manage caseloads of patients and utilise their prescribing qualification thus improving pharmaceutical care delivery and outcomes for patients.

The Teach & Treat services focus on clinical areas of both local and national priorities and include delivery to patients with chronic pain, heart failure, diabetes and respiratory conditions as well as multimorbidity / polypharmacy.  

The winners of the RPS Awards 2017 will be announced at a ceremony on 3 September 2017
