Read Codes. Read Codes are no more and for those who are unaware we are in a state of flux quietly having to change over to SnomedCT for all coding in primary care. As with most things in the NHS Read Codes are a shining example how to take a promising concept and totally shred […]Read More SnomedCT. A Blizzard is coming.

The Surgery work is phenomenal and I’m frantically trying to clear the work load to spend time coding. You have your […]Read More FROG IN A WELL & EVENT HANDLERS

I was asked by Tom Brownhill in a […]Read More RIGHT TOOLS FOR THE JOB

TARGETED MUR CHECKS. I’m just going to go out and say it. Community pharmacists are a very under utilised useful resource we have for commissioning care in the local area. I actually see them fit a similar position to Information Technology (IT), medication is ubiquitous and infiltrates into all aspects of services which we provide […]Read More INTEGRATING WITH COMMUNITY PHARMACISTS
