CHIPPS- Care Homes Independent Prescribing Service


This study is taking place over 5 years and is run by the University of East Anglia together with the University of Aberdeen, Queen's University Belfast and the University of Leeds.


The aim is to develop a new service in which 'pharmacist prescribers' will become part of the care home team, working alongside general practitioners, to improve the use of medicines and the care of residents.


CHIPPS is running in Norfolk, Aberdeen, West Yorkshire and Belfast.
