Your Local Prescribing Advisor

Local prescribing advisor video with Dr Iain Carr

Prescribing advisors are able to look deeper into your practice data as they can look at the clinical systems.

Detailed information can be reported on to answer very specific questions about antibiotic prescribing. For example age and gender can be examined alongside the usage by specific clinicians.

In this video clip Iain Carr, the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) pharmacist prescribing advisor who works with practices to review their antibiotic prescribing data discusses the data analysis that he and his colleagues can perform to monitor prescribing activity.
