The NHS Employers organisation and the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating
Committee have produced guidance on the Medicines Use
Review (MUR) service. The guidance will be updated in due course to reflect the changes to the MUR service agreed as part of the 2014/15 CPCF settlement.
The current guidance was updated in October 2013 to reflect changes to commissioning arrangements in the NHS from April 2013. The guidance is a useful resource for commissioners of community pharmacy, pharmacy contractors and individual pharmacists. It includes information on the conditions of the service, how to deliver it successfully, monitoring arrangements, the MUR service specification and a list of suggested questions which pharmacists can use during the MUR consultation with patients.
