The wonderful Overprescribing and Discharge Medicine Team at Princess Royal Hospital

The Overprescribing and Discharge Medicine Team at PRH Emily, Gemma and Lydia were employed to improve our communication and follow up on discharge for patients. In September they reached a peak of over 300 referrals which resulted in an estimated cost saving of over £250,000 for the health system. Their work is truly valuable and despite only being in post for six months they have had a huge impact.
