Patient information leaflets and action plans

Patient leaflets and action plans are designed to help health professionals communicate essential treatment messages to patients. They are best used during a consultation and are designed to complement consumer medicine information (CMI) leaflets, which contain specific information about particular medicines.

Some patient leaflets can be accessed and printed from prescribing software systems (Best Practice, MedTech 32, Genie and Medical Director). Leaflets not available from prescribing software systems can be manually imported into the software. Instructions for importing and printing the leaflets from Medical Director and Best Practice are included below.
