Look again at pharmaceutical care in care homes

Understanding more about the pressure that care homes are under can help us improve the service that pharmacy offers to them, says Noel Wicks In recent years, our pharmacies have had the opportunity to increase the amount of care home business we do. It’s been a fascinating process that has been both interesting and challenging for a whole variety of reasons. From this personal experience, I’d say that the article published in this edition of P3 discussing nursing homes is a fair reflection of what looking after care homes is really like. It’s been really interesting spending time in a range of different care homes. I’ve been able to visit a multitude of facilities, from large nursing homes with high-dependency units right through to small rural facilities with only a handful of residents. One thing I’ve found to be universal among all of the sites I’ve visited was the immense amount of pressure faced by staff and managers at these homes.
