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.
