Aneurin Bevan University Health Board - Medicines Management in Acute Hospitals

11 Feb 2016 - 4:58pm

Our study follows on from previous local audit work we have undertaken on primary care prescribing. It focuses on aspects of medicines management that directly impact on inpatients at acute hospitals.

Despite low staffing levels and high workload, we identified good relationships on wards together with effective aspects of corporate arrangements and some medicines management processes. The Health Board now needs to develop its strategic approach, address storage issues, minimise some process risks and enhance the way it monitors its services.
