Guidance to support primary care prescribers and pharmacists is available from the MLCSU Coronavirus guidance resource page. Links are provided to national resources and regional documents produced by MLCSU, RDTC, and SPS for use by Pan Mersey APC, LSCMMG, and GMMMG.
The list of resources will be updated as new material becomes available so please check back regularly for updates.
The Pan Mersey APC supports the use of COVID-specific guidance issued by NICE, and NHS England and NHS Improvement. During the COVID pandemic this will supersede any APC advice. In the absence of any COVID-specific advice then the usual Pan Mersey guidance and RAG rating will still apply unless otherwise indicated.
These documents provide additional information for GPs who are prescribing medication that has been classified Amber Initiated or Amber Retained.
Please see the Shared Care section for shared care frameworks for medicines with Purple classification.
These medicines have been categorised as Amber Patient Retained for the indications in this document by the Pan-Mersey Area Prescribing Committee.
