Patients Views Wanted – Prescribed Medication in Hospital and Sharing Information with Community Services

Prescribed Medication in hospital and sharing information with community services – Patient views wanted!

The 10 Healthwatch organisations in Greater Manchester are working with the Local Professional Network (LNP) to find out the public’s view on the introduction of an electronic referral system between pharmacy teams – such as hospital, community, general practice and mental health – across Greater Manchester and if they support the principle of sharing information this way.

The LPN works with patients and the public to improve local dental, community pharmacy and optometry (eye care) services. It is part of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership which is investigating the feasibility of introducing an electronic referral system between pharmacy teams across Greater Manchester.

Members of the public who have stayed in hospital in the last two years are invited to take part in an online survey to share their experiences – whether good, bad or indifferent – with prescribed medication both during and after their.

Please take some time to let us know what you think at

The survey closes on 18 March 2018
