Powys Teaching Health Board – Medicines Management in Community Hospitals

22 Dec 2015 - 9:44am

This review covered medication information provided by GPs to support admissions, medication reviews that patients receive during their stay, the support patients are given to take their medicines, and the arrangements to ensure good medicines management after discharge.

The audit found that Powys Teaching Health Board is in a good position to introduce a comprehensive medicines management service in its community hospitals with a clear strategy and funding to support expansion of the workforce.

Further work is required to improve the supply and storage of medicines, strengthen medicines management processes and to monitor and improve performance.
