Level C audit

Level C Patients are older patients who have been assessed by a multidisciplinary team as being unable to manage their medicines on their own. These patients have a care package that includes home carers being responsible for ensuring that the patient receives the correct medicine, in the correct way and at the correct time. Level C patients should have a medication chart and recording system in place, with charts being produced either by the hospital at discharge, the community pharmacy or the dispensing GP practice. Charts should be maintained in the community by either pharmacy or Dispensing GPs, with GPs being actively involved in their updating. GP systems need to have a system of highlighting the Level C patients.

Repeat Prescribing

This protocol is designed to aid Practices with the maintenance of their repeat prescribing records. Given the magnitude of this task it is intended that it be carried out on an on-going basis.

Specific areas covered by the protocol are:-

Drug Names - Check that names are from the GPass dictionary. Substitute dictionary names for practice added drugs where possible

Strength - Optimise strengths where possible – check notes for contra-indications.

Duplication - Check for duplicated drugs of same name (check this is not to make up strength), check for two drugs of same class/action.

Time Expired - Remove drugs not ordered for 12 months unless seasonal /intermittent medicines see list.

Generic - All drugs to be prescribed generically except specified list of modified release drugs or at practices request.

Directions - Directions on all meds (no “as directed’s”) unless dressings/devices.

Compliance - Check compliance, are repeats requested at logical times – any over or under ordering (particularly drugs liable to abuse)?

Quantities - Synchronise quantities of regular repeats to 28 or 56 day (depending on practice) or nearest pack size.

Unsuitable for repeat - Check for drugs unsuitable for repeat and report numbers to LHP pharmacist for review.
