Pharmacy News

From January 2015, a new target group is due to be introduced to the MUR group. Time to brush up on clinical skills and new advise for patients on medication for these conditions.

Proportion of targeted MURs will be increased, but this will not implemented till April 2015. Target group percentage for MURs will be increased from 50% to 70% of all MURs carried out in a year. The Department of Health signed amendments to the Secretary of State Directions on 4th December 2014 which implement these changes to the MUR service. The Directions will be published in the January 2015 Drug Tariff and will mean that the new cardiovascular risk MUR target group will commence from 1st January 2015.

However, the minimum percentage of MURs that must fall within the target groups will remain at 50% until 31st March 2015; increasing to 70% only for MURs carried out from 1st April 2015. This should help pharmacies to manage the transition to the new groups and targets more easily.
