Evaluation of Non-Medical Prescribing in Primary Care and Mental Health Services in NW England.

Internal description

Research Project Grant [RPG]

Description

Considerable evidence exists to indicate that that non-medical prescribing is as effective as usual care by medical prescribers and can deliver comparable outcomes in a range of settings and with varying levels of autonomy.

Health Education England North West (HEENW) provided funding to increase capacity of non-medical prescribers (NMPs) in primary care and mental health as part of the
2016/17 Workforce Transformation plan, and in community pharmacy in 2015/16.

HEENW commissioned The University of Manchester to evaluate the impact of these Workforce Transformation funds.

The aim of this project was to evaluate the impact of the Workforce Transformation funding for NMPs in primary care and mental health in 2016/17 in the North West
region and that for Community Pharmacists in 2015/16.
