NHS Grampian Medicines Management Homepage

Welcome to the new medicines management website for NHS Grampian.

This website aims to act as a resource for health care professionals involved in dealing with medicines. It is hoped that you find it easy to use and informative. NHS Grampian will spend over 100 million on medicines in 2006/07 and so effective use of medicines is an important issue for all. NHS Grampian promotes an integrated approach to medicines management, with an emphasis on high quality, cost-effective, evidence-based and safe prescribing and use. One of the key messages of this resource is that improving medicines management should be everyone's business. It does not fall exclusively within the purview of one profession or organisation. It is dependent on teamwork and a holistic approach to care which involves the contribution of health and social care professionals, in partnership with patients and carers.

The fixed links at the top of each page allow access to various sections of the website, including formulary (GJF), eGJF, medicines management, policies, newsletters (including IMPACT), shared care protocols and patient group directions. The search function allows you to search the whole of the medicines management website or can limit the search to specific sections. We hope the website will reflect the needs of users, and would like to hear your views and suggestions for improving the site.
