NHS England has been carrying out a desktop exercise to review homecare medicines services. The next steps are to bring together data from the internal review with the House of Lords inquiry report recommendations to shape a programme of work on homecare medicines. The Department is carefully considering all the conclusions and recommendations made in the report and will respond in due course.

The House of Lords Public Services Committee will be updated in January 2024.
