Vitamin D guidance

To support the Trust's effective monitoring and management of vitamin D, the Trust has developed:

  • A memo to all nursing and medical staff summarising their responsibilities


  • A vitamin D algorithm that summarises routine blood testing of serum vitamin D and calcium concentrations, and supplement prescribing

  • A vitamin D FAQs leaflet that will be issued to every Trust in-patient


Any queries about vitamin D testing and supplements should be initially directed to your ward pharmacist. Otherwise contact for further information
