Isle of Wight Medicines Optimisation Team

The Isle of Wight Medicines Optimisation Team is responsible for the provision of medicines on the Isle of Wight. We work with the general practices, community pharmacies and care homes. We aim to ensure that prescribing is evidence-based, safe and effective and a good use of the limited financial resources of the NHS.
