Nice | Opioids in palliative care

This guideline doesn’t really add to current practice.

They advise using oral morphine as 1st line and then patches as 2nd line (or subcut if requirements are variable).

Otherwise this doesn’t add to what is in the BNF and the local palliative care guidance.

"I started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
