Nice | Ciclosporin emulsion for dry eye disease

This is a new guideline from NICE advising that ciclosporin ophthalmic emulsion (Ikervis) can be used for treating dry eye disease that hasn’t responded to artificial tears. It has an anti-inflammatory effect on the cornea and lacrimal gland. The marketing authorisation is for treating severe keratitis in adult patients with dry eye disease.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin – my profile, certificates, terms and conditions, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
