Shared care is a Local Enhanced Service with a specific approach to the seamless prescribing and monitoring of high risk medicines which enables patients to receive care in an integrated and convenient manner.  Shared care is a particular form of the transfer of clinical responsibility from a hospital or specialist service to general practice in which prescribing by the GP, or other primary care prescriber, is supported by a shared care protocol.  This planned delivery of care for patients is informed by an enhanced information exchange over and above the routine clinic, discharge and referral letters.  These high risk medicines appear in the amber section of the Formulary and Traffic Lights list.
