How we help

We are working closely with our partners to review the South West Yorkshire Area Prescribing Committee (SWYAPC) to ensure it meets the needs of the CCGs and their partner organisations in the local health economy.

We have organised workshops and meetings with SWYAPC members to review its role and membership and will continue to support its work while facilitating links with neighbouring areas

The team will support the CCGs in a number of other key areas, including quality assurance and safety around medicines, QIPP (Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention), service development and redesign, regular medicines updates and budget impact forecasting.
