Inspection summary findings
Principle 1. Governance
The pharmacy team generally identifies and manages the risks associated with its services and people using the pharmacy services can raise concerns and provide feedback. The team has training and guidance to respond to safeguarding concerns to protect the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. The team members respond appropriately when errors occur, they discuss what happened and they take appropriate action to prevent future mistakes. The pharmacy keeps most of the records it needs to by law. It has written procedures that the pharmacy team follows but the procedures have not been recently reviewed. This means team members may not be following up-to-date procedures.
Principle 2. Staff
The pharmacy has a team with the qualifications and skills to support the pharmacy’s services and its team members generally act to support the safe and efficient delivery of these services. Team members support each other in their day-to-day work and they share their learning from errors to help all team members deliver safe pharmacy services. The pharmacy team members do not regularly receive formal feedback on their performance and they have limited opportunities to complete ongoing training. This means they could find it harder to keep their knowledge and skills up to date.
Principle 3. Premises
The pharmacy is clean, secure and suitable for the services provided. People can have a conversation with a team member in a private area.
Principle 4. Services, including medicines management
The pharmacy provides services which support people's health needs and it manages its services well to help ensure people receive appropriate care. The pharmacy gets its stock from reputable sources and it stores medicines properly. The team carries out checks to make sure medicines are in good condition and suitable to supply.
Principle 5. Equipment and facilities
The pharmacy has the equipment it needs to provide safe services and to protect people’s private information.
