Policy reviews and revisions
We have extensive experience writing medication policies to the latest NICE best practice guidelines. Our policies containing expert guidance, in plain English, allowing staff to work from them on a day to day basis. They are specific to each care setting (home care, care homes day services etc.) and specific to England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
They also include all of the forms and protocols you will need to manage medicines safely.
Since 2003, we have written medication policies for:
- West Sussex County Council
- Southampton City Council
- Portsmouth City Council
- London Borough of Brent
- Islington Council
- Hackney Council
- Surrey County Council
- Carewatch UK
- Young Epilepsy
- Hope House Childrens’ Hospice
- Handled with Care
- Linc-Cymru (Wales)
We start by reviewing your existing medication policy or standard operating procedures and highlighting where any areas that don’t align with CQC best practice, NICE (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) or other relevant best practice documents.
Once agreed, we then re-write the policy and consult with you on any changes. We then review the policy after it has been sent out to stakeholders for consultation.
