Care Homes - Medicine Management Service.

As a small pharmacy, we are able to deliver a medicines management service tailored to the individual needs of every care home we service. Pharmacists rarely change, and each care home will be provided with a dedicated named technician, who will know your home, staff and patients.

We offer a same day service and will liaise with the care home to determine sensible cut-off times, which will take account of GP visits, which will ensure medicines can (for the most part) be started on the day of prescribing.

We will manage your repeat prescriptions, chase missing items and deliver medicines in a timely manner to allow your administration process prior to start of the cycle. This frees up the time of your employees who can then focus on delivering quality care to patients.
