Chemist Corner (1110431)

Inspection outcome: Standards met

Last inspection: 12/12/2022

Pharmacy context

This pharmacy provides its services from a closed unit on the corner of a busy road in a residential area. People cannot visit the pharmacy in person. The pharmacy dispenses and delivers NHS prescriptions to people’s homes.

Inspection summary findings

Principle 1. Governance

Standards met

The pharmacy generally manages risks to makes sure its services are safe, and it takes some action to improve patient safety. It keeps the records required by law, although some are not up to date which could make it harder to understand what has happened if queries arise. The team members keep people's private information safe and have a basic understanding on how to protect vulnerable people.  

Principle 2. Staff

Standards met

The pharmacy has enough staff to manage its workload and they complete the essential training they need to do their jobs. But ongoing training does not happen regularly and it is not well organised, so the team’s knowledge may not always be fully up to date. Team members are comfortable providing feedback to their manager and they receive feedback about their own performance.

Principle 3. Premises

Standards met

The pharmacy premises are small but provide a secure and professional environment for people to receive healthcare services from. The pharmacy‘s website provides essential information about its services.​

Principle 4. Services, including medicines management

Standards met

The pharmacy offers healthcare services which are generally well managed, and people receive appropriate care. It gets its medicines from licensed suppliers and the team carries out some checks to ensure medicines are in suitable condition to supply.

Principle 5. Equipment and facilities

Standards met

Members of the pharmacy team have access to the equipment and facilities they need for the services they provide. They maintain the equipment so that it is safe to use.
