For care providers looking to provision specialist support with their medicines management, we offer a number of service types which can be adapted to suit your needs.
‘Ad hoc’ support
We understand that some clients prefer to commission services on a ‘one-off’ basis rather than a commitment to regular support. No problem, be an audit, training, or a clinical pharmacy service, rest assured that the service provided will be of highest standard and delivered in a way that suits you.
Rapid Response Team
Occasionally the first contact we have with an organisation is as a result of an adverse inspection by CQC or another regulator that could jeopardise on-going registration. Our Rapid Response Team has been set up to assist organisations in circumstances where an immediate and intensive intervention is urgently required to support medicines management.
Designed to deliver the highest level of assurance regarding the reduction of medication risk and promotion of on-going quality practice. Partners joining our Assurance Programme initially undergo a comprehensive diagnostic that identifies all risks related to medicines management. From this risk matrix we devise a personalised Assurance Pathway that implements necessary solutions for rapid improvement and then matures to a maintenance level of longer term support. A feature of the pathway is that the amount of support is variable, stepping down to a maintenance level once improvements have been attained
The Assurance Programme encompasses a multitude of services from our on-site clinical pharmacy specialists, such as: training, audit and governance. Each Pathway is underpinned with periodic re-audits, to ensure that the pathway changes to reflect changing and progressive needs.
Medicines Management Portfolio
Our Medicines Management Portfolio is a portfolio of pre-defined service input levels that enables organisations to commission a fixed level of support services on an annual basis at a fixed price. Particularly suits those partners who have a clear understanding of what input they wish to receive.
The Portfolio ranges from a Bronze package, enabling telephone access to a specialist team, to Platinum levels that see our pharmacy specialists imbedded frequently as part of your core team.
