Your treatment and medicines

We will manage your medicines safely according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance and ensure all your medicines are given to you as prescribed.

We have clinical procedures which give clear guidance to staff about how to manage your treatment. Our clinical procedures are regularly reviewed to reflect updates in NICE guidance.

Our staff have training in medicines and clinical staff have annual competency assessments to promote effective treatment and safe administration of medicines.

Where we judge we require additional advice and support we will refer to specialist teams in the community. Our medicine provision is subjected to an annual assessment by our pharmacy advisory service. Where recommendations are made we will take timely and effective action.

If you prefer to manage your own treatment and medicines we will support you to do so subject to a risk assessment for safety and with your written consent.
