Audits Obstetrics, Gynaecology & Urinary Tract Disorders

Across D&G in 2006/07, £93,200 and £41,300 was spent on leg and night drainage bags respectively. Large quantities of leg and night bags were disposed of during the region-wide medicines waste campaign in 2007 suggesting over-ordering/over-prescribing and potential educational needs for patients and healthcare professionals. This audit aims to identify patients for review who • Over-order supplies • Under-order supplies • Have inappropriately low or high quantities available per prescription • Receive catheter supplies but were not previously known to the regional continence team
