Putting patient care back into the community for specialist injectables – How the model can work for Dispensing practices, the patient and the NHS

14 Oct 2021
DDA Theatre

An overview and case study - local general practice/PCN model for community administration of complex and Biosimilar Generics

  • Forecast increases in patient demand for hospital care caused by growth in people living with long term conditions and advances in specialised therapies will push health systems to move more patient services into the community setting
  • The huge number of advanced medicines that will come off patent protection will present an opportunity for health systems to deliver cost savings by maximising the use of more cost effective complex generics and biosimilars
  • Any reduction in expenditure for health systems will allow reinvestment of funds to reduce health inequalities by treating more patients
  • General practice reinforced by their PCN workforce will be able to innovate to provide new more specialised patient services
  • Exploration of how a new model has been designed to support ‘out of hospital care’ for patients, providing savings for the NHS, and resources for general practice to take over work load that was either done in
