Managing patients' medicines after discharge from hospital
Description: The report sets out findings from visits to 12 PCT's including a survey of their GP practices. Overall, the study found that GP's provided many aspects of relevant information to acute trusts when they refer patients in non-emergency cases. 98% of GP's practices reported that they provide a list of all medicines currently prescribed to the patient, 90% provide the dosage of all, listed drugs and 85% provide the frequency of all listed drugs.
