Abstract IntroductionResearch and an emerging evidence base from the United States informed a review of medication use across GP Practices. This identified Opioid Analgesic Dependence (OAD) as a significant health risk to the population of North Lincolnshire and a significant potential cost to the Clinical Commissioning Group. In a unique and innovative project, North Lincolnshire Council and Indivior have joint funded a pilot project, delivered by Agencia, to identify the scale of the problem and develop workable and scalable solutions.MethodOAD often arises from prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) opioids. Addressing the issue through prescribing data analysis, patient identification via the Opioid Risk Assessment Tool, and a service combining a non-medical prescribing pharmacist and experienced psychosocial worker to support individuals who wish to address their OAD. Education has also been provided to engage local GPs, Nurses and Pharmacists to support and refer into the service.ResultsInitial patient response has been very positive with full engagement in treatment. The pilot has been instrumental in obtaining PHE capital funding for an OAD Treatment Centre at the GP practice providing clinical leadership for the project. ConclusionThis exciting project is already changing and possibly saving lives in North Lincolnshire and will form the template for a scalable and cost-effective solution to a wide scale problem that has been identified as being the 'tip of the iceberg' for the UK and allow us to avoid the public health impact which OAD is causing in the USA. External funding details Indivior Ltd £10,000 Grant. North Lincolnshire Council £10,000 Grant.
