Selcan (1028723)

Inspection outcome: Standards met

Last inspection: 26/07/2019

Pharmacy context

This is a community pharmacy located in a residential and multi-cultural area of Bristol. The pharmacy dispenses NHS and private prescriptions. It provides advice about over-the-counter (OTC) medicines and some services such as Medicines Use Reviews (MURs). And, it supplies multi-compartment compliance aids for people if they find it difficult to take their medicines on time.

Inspection summary findings

Principle 1. Governance

Standards met

Overall, the pharmacy’s working practices are safe and effective. The team understands how to protect the welfare of vulnerable people. The pharmacy protects people's private information well. And, it keeps its records in accordance with the law. Members of the pharmacy team monitor the safety of their services by recording mistakes and learning from them. But they could record a little more detail, which would make it easier for them to spot patterns and help prevent the same things happening again.

Principle 2. Staff

Standards met

The pharmacy has enough staff to manage its workload safely. Members of the pharmacy team understand their roles and responsibilities. And they regularly complete ongoing training to help keep their skills and knowledge up to date.

Principle 3. Premises

Standards met

The pharmacy's premises are clean, secure and provide an appropriate environment to deliver its services.

Principle 4. Services, including medicines management

Standards met

The pharmacy provides its services safely and effectively. It obtains its medicines from reputable sources and stores them appropriately. The pharmacy’s team members take care with higher-risk medicines. But, they don't always record relevant information when people receive these medicines. This makes it difficult for them to show that appropriate advice has been provided upon supply.

Principle 5. Equipment and facilities

Standards met

The pharmacy has the equipment and facilities it needs to provide its services safely.
