Dear Zarafshaan

 

In response to your request for information I have received the following
details:-

 

I would like to request the information about the following points around
the CCG's decisions with patient care and its structure.

 

• What criteria does the CCG use to select which inhalers should be
prescribed for Asthma and COPD?

 

Area Prescribing Committee considers effectiveness ( evidence base),
safety and cost in relation to the present formulary choices. Also
some other factors e.g clinician preference ( which involves engagement
with clinicians ) and type / range of inhaler formulation.

 

• How does the CCG compare the cost-effectiveness , efficacy, safety and
patient usability of different inhalers when selecting which COPD and
Asthma inhalers should be included on its local guidance?

 

APC receive a standardised  independent evidence based template
summarising evidence based, safety, costs etc.. with a summary report
produced from this information and also additional information
including discussions and engagement with local clinicians.

 

• Over the past three years, has the CCG introduced a planned programme of
care which resulted in the medicines optimisation team, contractors or GP
practices proactively reviewing patients and aligning their COPD and/or
Asthma inhalers to alternative options?

 

Yes

 

• Please list the alternative asthma and COPD inhalers that were
introduced by the CCGs medicines optimisation team, contractors or GP
practices during any planned programme of care that proactively reviewed
the use of asthma and/or COPD inhalers over the past 3 years
