Abstract

Poster:
- Robust prescribing indicators analogous to those used in primary care are not available currently in NHS hospital trusts
- The Department of Health has recently implemented a scheme for self-assessment scoring medicines management processes (maximum 23) in NHS hospitals
- There is no clear relationship between average values for two antibiotic prescribing indicators obtained in ten NHS hospital trusts in the West Midlands
- There is no clear relationship between either indicator value and the corresponding self-assessment medicines management score
- This study highlights the difficulties involved in assessing the medicines management processes in NHS hospitals; better medicines management evaluation systems are needed
