Shared Care Protocols


The management of patients with some conditions can be complicated, and as a result it may not be possible to fully discharge patients from hospital back to the care of their General Practitioner (GP). Therefore, a system of Shared Care encompassing primary and hospital out-patient care is appropriate. You can access the list below for those medicines that have an agreed Shared Care Protocol within Cardiff and Vale UHB.
