Medicines Optimisation Review Programme (MORP) (2019)

Swale CCG

Project Summary

MORP is a patient-centred programme, which is fully integrated within GP practices.

Each GP practice have an allocated Pharmacy Technician and Pharmacist who will work closely with all practice staff to review the medication and clinical regimes of those ‘high-risk’ patients.

The necessary interventions and recommendations are then discussed with the patients’ GP and an action plan agreed.

The aim of the Medicines Optimisation Review Programme (MORP) is to support ‘high-risk’ patients with the management of their medications. ‘High-risk’ patients can be those patients that are linked to;

  • Unplanned hospital admissions
  • Hospital discharges
  • Taking multiple medications (polypharmacy)
  • Risk of falls
  • Long term conditions
  • Frail elderly
