National Medicines Optimisation Dashboard

The Medicines Optimisation dashboard was first launched in 2014 and since then NHS England has developed and refined the dashboard based on feedback from the people who use it. The dashboard is now being relaunched with a different look implementing learning from feedback and evaluation and also aligning with the Right Care approach. The new Medicines Optimisation dashboard will make it easier for our users to develop plans to ensure that all patients achieve the best possible outcomes from their treatment, wherever they live.

New dashboard developments include:

  • A new platform based on NHS RightCare’s Instant Atlas
  • Time series analysis to enable trends to be monitored
  • More regular refresh of data
  • New patient experience metrics
  • Ability to extract visuals for use in presentations

As always, your comments and suggestions for future versions of the Medicines Optimisation dashboard can be sent to

The dashboard is presented to allow local NHS organisations to highlight variation in local practice and provoke discussion on the appropriateness of local care. It is not intended as a performance measurement tool.
