Medicines Optimisation: a key priority

Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) aims to ensure that the NHS in Bristol uses medicines in a safe, effective, and sustainable way. In order to commission the best healthcare for the population of Bristol we need to make sure that patients have access to the best medicines available, and to ensure that these are used appropriately.

Bristol CCG has a ‘Medicines Management team’ of clinicians that work closely with other clinical staff in local hospitals, community services, mental health services, our member practices, community pharmacies, care homes, the local authority and local universities on a broad programme of work to achieve our aims.

In this short clip, Jon Hayhurst, Head of Medicines Management, highlights the crucial role of medicines in modern healthcare and how the CCG is working to ensure that they are used safely and effectively in Bristol for the benefit of all patients.
