Introduction and Policy Aims

This care service recognises that many service users are prescribed some form of medication 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.

This policy applies wherever the service has agreed to support a service user in taking their medicines, which include prescribed and over-the-counter medicines, and those to be taken (as required).
