Shared care guidelines are developed when sophisticated or complex treatments that were initiated in secondary care are then prescribed by a GP. The guidelines set out the process that needs to be followed for the GP to take on prescribing responsibility. Successful shared care arrangements enable the combination of the best of both primary and secondary care for the benefit of the patient. They allow the seamless transfer of patient treatment from the secondary care sector to general practice.
