Oral nutritional supplements

NHS SWL aim to drive change relating to spend efficiencies and quality improvement through the early identification, treatment and management of malnutrition and the appropriate prescribing of clinically and cost effective oral nutritional supplements (ONS) in primary care.

Quick reference guidelines are also available for the three core focus areas, namely:

  • General Practices
  • Care Homes
  • Dietitians: ONS Prescribing Across the Secondary and Primary Care Interface

Contact your local NHS SWL Prescribing Support Dietitian or Prescribing Advisor for support and resources available to promote guideline implementation including access to e-learning portals.
