Difficulties facing the care home industry:

Moving into a care home is a significant decision that costs a sizeable amount of money. Our pharmacy currently supports a number of care homes to provide the best possible medication service it can to its residents.

Our promises to make your experience as hassle-free as possible:

With over 25 years of successful care home servicing, we offer care homes who partner with us a comprehensive list of services which ensures that the dispensing, assembling and record-keeping process for medication is a smooth and hassle-free service.

Our friendly and expert team are here to discuss a host of options so you can adjust the service to your needs.

What is included in the care home service package?

Every residential and nursing home is different, from the number of staff to the building size and location. To ensure we can provide our valuable service effectively, we will always strive to tailor our vast packages to each local care home.

Some benefits and packages included in the care home service are:

  • A free, extensive staff training package beyond CQC standards
  • Free flu vaccination courses
  • Free prescription ordering and collection service from local GPs
  • Out of hours support service (limited to select areas)
  • Electronic medication administration record system (E-MAR) for easy medicine management

Our Service:

We pride ourselves on our ability to offer a consistent, quality service to both residents and the care home staff. By providing professional care home services and support, we hope to lighten the strain on such an important healthcare staple. The reach of the care home service is limited to the homes within a 5-mile radius of our locations. So that we can guarantee responsive service times.

Choosing the right care home can be a difficult task. Here are some things to consider before choosing a care home:

  • Location
  • Cost
  • Services and Activities
  • Visitation
  • Staff
  • Cleanliness
  • Food Choices
  • Access to health professionals
  • Religious, cultural or lifestyle needs

How to research a care home

If you would like to find out more information about a care home, you could:

  • Phone them
  • Visit their website (if they have one)
  • Request a brochure
  • Visit the care home
  • Request a temporary stay

There are also organisations that regularly inspect care homes to see how well they are doing. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates all health and adult social care in England.
