We wanted a point of prescribing solution that was simple, quick, integrated with our clinical systems, adaptable, locally responsive and with as much emphasis on quality as cost-effectiveness.

Dr James Howarth Partner at Spilsby Surgery and Clinical Lead of the Skegness and Coast Locality of Lincolnshire East CCG

I find the messages on the profile being triggered by specific patient factors very useful to reduce messaging fatigue for GP's.

Chirag Patel Deputy Head of Medicines Management Coastal West Sussex CCG

As well as looking at savings from our QIPP program we wanted to look at safety. So, we've used the RCGP prescribing safety indicators from FDB OptimiseRx as a proxy for prescribing safety.
