Audit of Medicines in Social Care Settings

Course Overview

We have a comprehensive audit tool enabling you to thoroughly inspect your medicines systems. Developed by our own expert (and ex-CQC) pharmacists, it will ensure you score highly during CQC inspections and that people using your service are protected against any risks associated with medicines.

On this half-day course, we will train you how to use the tool and provide you with a voucher code to download it for free (rather that the standard cost of £50).
