Medicines management encompasses the entire way that medicines are selected, procured, delivered, prescribed, administered and reviewed, to optimise the contribution that medicines make to producing desired outcomes to patient care." (Audit Commission. "A Spoonful of Sugar". 2001)
We are committed to ensuring that services users and patients receive the same standard of care with respect to medicines as they would in an acute or specialist trust, although delivered in a way that meets their specific needs.
