Service: An on-site mini review of medicines processes and medicines management, tailored to your needs, followed by a short report and action list.
Typically this involves three hour assessment visit to look at medicines processes. This could include being there when medicines are ordered or checked in, a meeting with key staff, notes reviews, check on charts and policies and a discussion. This is followed by production and delivery of a short report giving recommendations, plus a follow up conversation and notes on any actions needed.
This work is carried out by a Nurse Prescriber or Pharmacist.
