We are supporting this ground-breaking project to reduce the risk of patients being prescribed the wrong medications. ‘PINCER’ stands for Pharmacist-led INformation technology intervention for reducing Clinically important ERrors in medication management.

The project is a collaboration led by Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust supported by the University of Lincoln, University of Nottingham and 17 of the region’s CCGs. EMAHSN has provided £117,000 support to develop the project, with a further £500,000 awarded by the Health Foundation as part of its highly competitive ‘Scaling Up Improvement’ award.

We are also exploring a partnership with pharmaceutical companies to add additional resources to accelerate deployment of the PINCER intervention into GP practices throughout the region.
