GM LPC has secured agreement from Manchester's Area Prescribing Committee for fewer switches in future. In addition, the medicines management team won't start switching until four weeks after changes are agreed so community pharmacies can try to reduce their stockholding.
The next drugs to be switched within Manchester are as follows. You may therefore wish to reduce your stockholding of other brands/generics over the next few weeks.
- Procyclidine to be switched to Kemadrin
- Buprenorphine to be switched to Butec
Any future switches will be published in this newsletter.
