Inspection summary findings
Principle 1. Governance
The pharmacy generally manages the risks associated with its services and it protects peoples’ information. Trained members of the pharmacy team are clear about their roles and responsibilities. They record some things that go wrong, so that they can learn from them. But they do not always record or review all of their mistakes, so they may miss some opportunities to improve. The pharmacy keeps the records required by law, but some information is missing, which could make it harder to understand what has happened if queries arise.
Principle 2. Staff
The pharmacy has enough staff to manage its workload safely. Team members receive informal feedback from the pharmacist to help them improve. And they complete appropriate training for their roles and get some extra training to help them keep up to date.
Principle 3. Premises
The pharmacy is generally tidy. It is a suitable place to provide healthcare. And it has a consultation room so that people can have a conversation in private.
Principle 4. Services, including medicines management
The pharmacy's services are easy to access. And it generally manages and provides them safely. But members of the pharmacy team do not always know when high-risk medicines are being handed out. So, they may not always make extra checks or give people advice about how to take them. The pharmacy team carries out some checks to make sure medicines are in good condition.
Principle 5. Equipment and facilities
The pharmacy has the equipment it needs to provide services safely. And it is used in a way that protects privacy.
