Monitored dosage systems

Patients need to be able to take their medication safely and obtain discharge medication in a manner that avoids delays and appropriately uses the NHW Wales resources. Many hospitals have not been able to provide medication directly to the patient upon discharge in cases where the patient has previously been receiving a monitored dosage system (MDS). The purpose of this document is to reduce risk and variation in the discharge process in Wales for patients that have been receiving an MDS prior to admission and continue to require an MDS on discharge.
