Following a medicines optimisation refocus in 2018, the Respiratory Programme now aims to improve the quality, availability and accessibility of respiratory services, focused on addressing the interdependency between polypharmacy prescribing issues and respiratory prescribing, reducing unnecessary prescriptions and high respiratory drug spend.
