Rise Park Pharmacy (1031355)

Inspection outcome: Standards met

Last inspection: 27/10/2022

Pharmacy context

This is a busy independent pharmacy situated in a parade of shops in a residential area. In addition to dispensing medicines the pharmacy provides flu vaccinations. And it supplies people with medicines in multi‐compartment compliance packs to help them manage their medicines.

Inspection summary findings

Principle 1. Governance

Standards met

The pharmacy's working practices are generally safe and effective. People who use the pharmacy can give feedback on its services. The pharmacy mainly keeps the records it needs to by law so that medicines are supplied safely and legally. And the pharmacy team knows how to help protect the welfare of vulnerable people.

Principle 2. Staff

Standards met

The pharmacy has enough team members to dispense and supply its medicines safely, and they work effectively together and are supportive of one another. Team members are given some ongoing training to keep their knowledge and skills up to date. But they do not always get time set aside to complete it at work.

Principle 3. Premises

Standards met

The premises are suitable for the pharmacy's services and they are kept secure. But the pharmacy could do more to ensure that its premises always protects people's private information and ensure the premises are kept tidy and free from clutter.

Principle 4. Services, including medicines management

Standards met

People can access the pharmacy's services. The pharmacy was providing its services in an organised way. It orders its medicines from reputable sources and largely manages them properly. Team members do not always refer to the prescription when they are assembling compliance packs. And this could increase the chance that a mistake is made.

Principle 5. Equipment and facilities

Standards met

The pharmacy has the equipment and facilities it needs to provide services safely. And it keeps them clean.
