ICGP/HSE to meet on prescribing incentive project

15 Aug 2015

The ICGP is due to meet the Clinical Director of the Medicines Management Programme Dr Michael Barry shortly to examine details of a new prescribing incentive project for GPs.

It is expected that the Department of Health and the HSE will discuss the contractual side of implementing such a scheme — anticipated to be in place this year — with the IMO.

Earlier this year, a Memorandum of Under-standing (MoU) was agreed by the Department of Health, HSE and the IMO on a process of negotiation on a new GP contract.

The provision of safe, rational and cost-effective prescribing, including effective medicines management, was one of the topics included in the outline scope of these negotiations.
