3Ts Drugs Formulary: Shared Care Agreements (SCAs)

Many treatments listed on the formulary have to be initiated by a specialist at the hospital; once a patient has been stabilised on a treatment the ongoing prescribing can be done by the patient's GP.

Shared Care Agreements give the hospital prescriber, the GP and the patient the information they need to make sure that the treatment is started and continued safely.

Copies of all the Shared Care Agreements can be found here.
