The Discharge Medicine Service (DMS)went live in England on the 15th of February. The roll out of this service will be gradual as it is dependent on Hospital Trusts having the necessary referral IT solution to enable referrals to community pharmacies. As such it is highly likely that those Trusts that have Transfers of Care Around Medicines (TCAM) services in place will be the first to make referrals through the DMS service.
