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 have been working with NASGP as the main source of income since graduating. I can't recommend them more highly for newly-graduated GPs. They helped me with setting my terms and conditions and they even arranged a tutorial session about EMIS, as the system was new to me.

LocumDeck is a great help when it comes to organising sessions, pension forms and invoices for tax purposes.

NASGP was particularly supportive during the Covid-19 period. It recognised the effect it had on locum work, temporarily waived the already small fee on sessions and were keen on getting the members together in regular video meetings.

I'm a satisfied member of NASGP. "
