Care Home Services

Helping you care for your patients

We believe that pharmacists can assist you in improving care in care homes.

At a time when every pound of NHS resource needs to be scrutinised, we believe that a pharmacists, as part of a multidisciplinary team, can be responsible for the whole system of medicines and their use within a care home.

We believe, and evidence shows, that this improves care, reduces NHS medicines waste and reduces the serious harm that can be caused by inappropriate use of medicines.

We would ensure coordinated and consistently high standards of care.

Where a care home specialises e.g. in dementia care, our team are assuredly competent to support the relevant clinical speciality.

Medicine reviews within care homes can be commissioned by local Clinical Commissioning Groups and are advantageous to your care home.

We would lead a programme of regular medicine reviews and staff training, working in an integrated team with other healthcare practitioners ensuring medicines safety.
