Welcome to the DROP-List Webkit, on this page you'll find information on the Drugs and Devices to Review for Optimised Prescribing (DROP) lists.
For each area on the DROP-List we aim produce an independent supporting bulletin along with implementation materials (dependant on prioritisation at workplan consultation), however the main DROP-List bulletins contain:
- Recommendations around the rationale and delivery of the DROP-List items
- The top drugs or devices identified as being of the lowest priority for prescribers, and the national annual spend on these items
- Summary information on each of the items, along with rationale, where use may be appropriate, suggested alternatives and indicative associated savings
We have incorporated the prescribable NICE 'do not dos' that can be measured through ePACT data. A list of all prescribabale 'do not dos' has also been published as an excel spreadsheet that can be filtered by BNF category.
