Services Database Transfer of Care Service (Includes 2 LPCs)

Service ID



Please note this service is available across Buckinghamshire and the Thames Valley. Therefore, the following LPCs have the same transfer of care service in their areas:

  • Buckinghamshire LPC; and
  • Thames Valley LPC.

The service has only been added onto the Services Database under this entry to avoid duplication.

Briefly the service involves:

  • the hospital pharmacy identifies a patient and completes a referral form on PharmOutcomes;
  • the patient identifies the pharmacy they wish to use;
  • an email is sent to the pharmacy telling them to check PharmOutcomes; 
  • the pharmacy assesses the referral and accepts or rejects it; 
  • the pharmacy contacts the patient;
  • the pharmacy carries out a review, very often an MUR and claims the fee for that in the usual way; and
  • the pharmacy completes a form on PharmOutcomes.

An audit will be carried out to assess the impact of the service on areas such as hospital admission.

Further information on this service is also available on the Oxford Academic Health Network website.
