We support care providers to manage medicines within their care homes and hospices, and we support primary care networks (PCNs), local authorities, CCGs and quality teams to improve medicines assurance.

Our service can be tailored to meet your specific needs including:

  • System reviews of all medicines related processes including safe and secure handling of medicines audits
  • Policy and protocol review – we have developed tools to offer advice, and support assurance and quality improvement care providers’ medication policies
  • Training webinars and education programmes to improve medication safety and streamline processes, for example training on documentation of Medication Administration Records (MARs) or on how to reduce medications administration errors and improve record keeping
  • Support with implementing proxy-ordering
  • Structured medication reviews clinical service

All audits and recommendations are in line with current Care Quality Commission (CQC) and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance. Audit outputs include a detailed summary report, bespoke action plans and solutions to drive improvements. 

We have a care home Medicines Optimisation team who can support  care homes and commissioners to deliver efficiency, safety and quality improvement for the use of medicines to benefit staff and patients.
