Oral Nutritional Supplements (ONS)

From 1 September 2016, NHS Ipswich & East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group do not support the prescribing of ONS for residents in care homes, unless exclusion criteria applies as outlined in the policy. Residents with a poor intake should be commenced on homemade milkshakes and food first instead of ONS. A number of useful documents have been drawn up to assist care home staff with implementing the changes.
