The UKMi executive comprises the Directors or Heads of the regional and national NHS medicines information centres in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
It is a forum through which a range of collaborative and co‐operative strategic and operational work is undertaken to support the safe, effective and efficient use of medicines through evidence‐based information and advice. Our objectives include improving patient safety, supporting organisations and networks in their planning and policy work, advising healthcare professionals to optimise patient treatment and to lead the maintenance and development of the UKMi infrastructure and professional standards.
A presentation detailing the variety of information resources and clinical advice produced by UKMi is available here. In addition, an introductory pack for anyone working within an MI centre to help with the induction process is available.
