Bradford medication support guidance

Prior to giving any support with medication and to meet the Regulator’s registration requirements, The Council has developed a Medication Support Guidance with accompanying procedures, which reflects our organisational circumstances, contractual obligations and indemnity insurance cover. There is an expectation that social care providers under any contractual arrangement with the Council will be obliged to have their own Medication Policy which will as a minimum make reference to the Council’s Medication Support Guidance.

The Council will ensure that it keeps up-to-date with changes to medication support in the community by taking note of regulatory guidance on medication issues, observing medication safety alerts and taking account of medication support in the community advice from organisations such as NICE, UKHCA, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, Department of Health and other Local Authorities.
