G.F.T. Davies & Co. (1085587)

Inspection outcome: Standards met

Last inspection: 17/04/2023

Pharmacy context

This NHS community pharmacy is on a row of shops. It sells medicines over the counter. It dispenses people’s prescriptions. And it delivers medicines to people who have difficulty in leaving their homes. The pharmacy supplies multi-compartment compliance packs (compliance packs) to people who need help managing their medicines. People can get their flu vaccination at the pharmacy during the appropriate season. Its prescription items have recently increased due to temporary closures at other near-by pharmacies.

Inspection summary findings

Principle 1. Governance

Standards met

The pharmacy generally identifies and manages the risks associated with its services to help provide them safely. It protects people’s personal information well and its team members understand their role in protecting vulnerable people. It sometimes records mistakes that happen during the dispensing process. And it uses this information to help make its services safer. But it doesn’t make records about these events consistently. So, it may be harder for the pharmacy to identify any patterns or trends and make improvements to the way it works.   

Principle 2. Staff

Standards met

The pharmacy has enough team members for the services it provides. And the pharmacy supports its team members by giving them access to ongoing training to help keep their knowledge and skills up to date. They do the right training for their roles.

Principle 3. Premises

Standards met

The pharmacy's premises are clean, secure and generally provide an appropriate environment to deliver its services. People can have a conversation with a team member in a private area.

Principle 4. Services, including medicines management

Standards met

The pharmacy generally provides its services safely. It obtains its medicines from reputable sources, and it manages them appropriately so that they are safe for people to use. It takes the right action in response to safety alerts so that people get medicines and medical devices that are safe to use. But it could do more to check that people receiving higher-risk medicines are monitored appropriately.

Principle 5. Equipment and facilities

Standards met

The pharmacy has the equipment and facilities it needs to provide its services safely. And it keeps them clean. The team uses its facilities and equipment to keep people's private information safe.
