CPW would like to remind contractors that they should consider their professional obligations in respect of patients who are identified as part of the High Risk Medicines Survey and would encourage pharmacists to talk to these patients (potentially as part of a Medicines Use Review) and make appropriate records in respect of these consultations. Contractors are also reminded that the High risk Medicines survey is also one of the topics included in the collaborative working scheme.
