Medicine Gaps - project overview

Project overview


This is a Leeds-based NHS study aimed at patients who take oral anticoagulant medicines and/or cholesterol-lowering treatments daily.

Treatments work in patients who take them. Understanding more about the extent of missed or extra doses can help healthcare professionals to provide better care and support to patients. It can also help the NHS, support the design of staff training and inform future care planning.

The Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, Leeds GP Practices and the Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) [now reorganised into Integrated Care Systems (ICS)] are the key partners in this work. No external businesses are involved in any way.

The study outcomes will be used to inform healthcare professional training.

The Leeds CCG has funded the study. All necessary approvals have been granted.
