We are an NHS funded not-for-profit organisation that supports quality, optimised prescribing for patients.

We produce evidence-based resources and tools for primary care commissioners, and provide a platform to share innovation across the NHS.

Most of our materials are publicly available, however we also provide a range of data and intelligence tools, webinars and events for our subscribers.

We also aim to engage with a broad range of stakeholders including patients and carer groups, the pharmaceutical industry and voluntary sector organisations.
