Service specification


The following has been agreed with NHS England Area Team for off site MUR’s in South Yorkshire:

MURs off premises or Telephone MUR Applications

Use the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw version of the PREM2 form and submit to:

In order to facilitate prompt MURs at patient’s homes it has been agreed that only one South Yorkshire version of the PREM2 application (see attached) needs to be completed per pharmacist per pharmacy (i.e. if there are 2 pharmacists providing MURs for the same pharmacy, they will need to send in 2 applications. Similarly, if one pharmacist provides off premises MURs on behalf of 2 pharmacies, they need to submit 2 applications). Section 3 of the PREM2 should be completed stating “patients home” and “patients unable to attend the Pharmacy” (this has already been entered on the attached form).
Once sent to the Area Team, MURs can be completed at the patient’s home. At the end of the month (and before the 10th of the following month) a list of off premises MURs carried out that month stating date and address (but not patient name etc) has to be sent to the Area Team using the attached form.

Telephone MURs
Applications for undertaking MURs by telephone should be made only in exceptional circumstances and a PREM2 form should be submitted for each patient
