Medicines, Ethics and Practice (MEP)

Your go-to guide for good practice

No long lists of statutory obligations here – just everyday, practical tools and guidance to help you make the right decisions.

When to dispense medicines. When not to. When to raise an alarm.

With the MEP by your side, you’ll feel confident you’re making the right decisions.
