Our role in the management of medicines

Welcome to North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG’s medicines page. The CCG is committed to involving patients, carers and the public in improving the use of medicines.

The Medicines Management Team aims to improve the use of medicines across the local community to ensure people receive the right choice of medicine at the right time to:

  • Improve health outcomes
  • Avoid taking unnecessary medicines
  • Improve medicines safety
  • Reduce the wastage of medicines

The Medicines Management Team is a team of Pharmacists, supported by a Project Manager, who work with GP practices to help get the best out of medicines for our population.
