Why become a subscriber?

By producing quality materials and sharing them widely, we maximise resources and reduce duplication by local commissioners.

Our model means that the more subscribers there are in our community, the more we can deliver for everyone.

It’s why the overwhelming majority of Clinical Commissioning Groups are now part of our community, which spans the UK and also includes Commissioning Support Units, Welsh Health Boards, the Health and Social Care Board of Northern Ireland and National Support Services, Scotland.

PrescQIPP provide the Coventry and Rugby CCG with high quality products which enable us to deliver our Medicines Optimisation programme more effectively. The resources are always of the highest quality and, more importantly, timely ensuring they underpin, contemporaneously, the work we are doing in support of GP practice and the wider CCG.

Mahesh Mistry

This is a great resource which provides robust guidance and data. One of the best things about PrescQIPP is that you know you are part of a community and therefore have comfort in the knowledge there are others doing the same thing nationally.

Elizabeth Mallett

I think PrescQIPP is amazingly good - literally.

Diar Fattah

PrescQIPP has been great for me to use, it helps with data analysis and helps us compare with other areas.

Sue Smith

PrescQIPP provides me with support for implementing change which is often complex. The support is provided at a strategic and operational level, and the resources are developed by people who understand the challenges. The fact that initiatives we implement locally are supported by a wider group and that decisions are not being made in isolation is invaluable.

Sue Carter

I really value everything PrescQIPP do, you've become an essential resource to underpin our everyday work.

Mark Seaton / Jacqui Seaton

PrescQIPP as a resource is invaluable: it delivers evidence based guidance alongside practical tools to deliver change, supported by shared experience of fellow subscribers. However the greatest strength is the PrescQIPP team themselves who are always so enthusiastic and responsive to the needs of subscribers.

Jonathan Durand

The fact that material is validated adds to the assurance of its worth. The comprehensiveness of the dashboard is helpful in providing alternative views on performance that can help in getting the right message across. The collaborative nature of PrescQIPP is very encouraging and should be treasured.

Michael Dennis

I truly value the work of the PrescQIPP team and find the resources really helpful, I particularly like the attention to detail in terms of letters to patients and audit templates they produce. This makes it much easier for practices to implement change without further work on my part. Good value for money.

Liz Corteville

PrescQIPP provide an excellent service. Their evidence-based bulletins and briefings are an easy way of selling various Medicines Management interventions to GP practices. They are helpful and practical and come with a range of implementation tools such as audit templates and patient information letters. The writing of detail aids has been very labour-intensive for us in the past so we are looking forward to utilising the PrescQIPP resources. They have a robust quality assurance programme checking and validating the materials. They have welcomed us as stakeholders and consulted with us on the programme of work for the next year. Overall, we are very pleased to be working with them.

Grace Quaye

PrescQIPP has provided easy access to a wide range of legitimate, evidence based resources for the whole medicines management team. The regularly updated Dashboard allows benchmarking against local and national CCGs and enhancing identification of key work streams or areas requiring further investigation. The multiple resources available are aligned to the dashboard in addition to other areas, and provide both higher level overview and more detailed analysis if required. Access to best practice from other CCGs, audits, summary documents, webinars, good referencing and sign posting have been a welcome asset in developing our own medicines management strategy. The team have always been very helpful and responded rapidly to any queries or issues. Across our team PrescQIPP is highly regarded and valued.
