Inspection summary findings

Principle 1. Governance

Standards met

The pharmacy has written procedures to help make sure the team works safely. Its team members record some of their mistakes. But they do not always take action to stop them from happening again and they do not always review everything that goes wrong. So they may miss some opportunities to learn. The pharmacy keeps the records it needs to by law. It asks people to give their views about the services it provides. And it keeps people’s private information safe. The pharmacy’s team members are good at recognising and reporting concerns about vulnerable people to help keep them safe.

Principle 2. Staff

Good practice

The pharmacy has enough staff to manage its workload safely. Pharmacy team members complete regular training and have a good understanding about their roles and responsibilities. And they feel comfortable speaking up about any concerns they have.

Standards met

The pharmacy is clean and generally tidy. It is secure, has enough space to allow safe working and its layout protects people’s privacy.

The pharmacy’s team members take extra care with high-risk medicines to help make sure that people use these safely.
