Policy Statement

Most people receiving care in their own homes are prescribed some form of medication at some time as part of their treatment by their doctor or nurse and many have multiple medication needs.

While many service users manage their medication effectively themselves with the appropriate support from their informal carers, some ask for or need support with their medicines from their social care provider, as reflected in their needs assessment and care plans, and local commissioning agreements. Their needs will range from simple reminders and help with packaging through to actual administration of medication.
