NICE has recognised three clinical programmes delivered by Leeds- based Interface Clinical Services, all of which aim to help patients living with long term conditions. 

The pharmacist-led primary care reviews, which have been accepted onto the NICE shared learning database, feature programmes across three therapy areas:

  • Bone Health Programme: A Proactive Population Approach to Bone Health in partnership with Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria.
  • Safe and effective management of stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation in partnership with Sentinel Healthcare GP Federation
  • Supporting the management of type 2 diabetes with pharmacist-led reviews and implementing NICE recommended nine key care processes in partnership with Slough CCG

NICE uses the learning platform to share innovation and best practice across the NHS, showcasing examples of those using NICE guidance and standards to improve local health services.
