Dr Rachel Farrell, Consultant Neurologist, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London will share her experience of MS spasticity, the indications for Sativex and service model. She will discuss the NICE guideline recommendations and the NHNN experience in establishing Shared Care Guidelines across North Central London and how this might be adopted nationally. She will highlight the importance of working with clinical colleagues in pharmacy, rehabilitation services and primary care to ensure eligible patients can access Sativex and effective care protocols are in place.
Joela Mathews, Lead Neuro Science Pharmacist at Barts will talk about her experience attempting to establish a SCG for Sativex, the barriers to this and the important role primary care plays
The NCL group have published the SCG and it has been shared widely to enable colleagues in other parts of the country to progress Sativex prescribing within their systems.
