Pharmacists working in care homes
Care home pharmacists provide services to
nursing or residential homes for patients who
are not able to care for themselves, for example
older people with complex medical conditions.
You will be responsible for medicines issues
and usage in the home ensuring that patients
are administered the correct medicine at the
right time. You will also be involved in managing
medicines stock and medicines waste, drawing
up protocols so that systems run smoothly.
Like many other pharmacists you will work in a
team and will train others, e.g. care home staff.
