As part of our continuing efforts to raise awareness of the importance of medicines management within the Trust, we would like to share this short film with all staff today. It features Fionna, who is our Exec lead for medicines management and the Trust’s Accountable Officer for drugs, talking about why we all need to take medicines management seriously and about the possible serious consequences if we don’t.As part of our continuing efforts to raise awareness of the importance of medicines management within the Trust, we would like to share this short film with all staff today.

You can see the film here and we would encourage all staff to take the time to watch it.

 

As we explained in the last Chief Executive’s Weekly Message, it is vital that, as a Trust, we improve our whole approach to medicines. We need to show real improvements in this area to ensure that our patients receive the best and safest care possible and that staff are compliant with professional and legal requirements.

 

I do know that most of the time when we do get things wrong, this is not done deliberately but is often down to not being sure about the right thing to do.

 

If you are ever unsure of the right thing to do regarding medicines, please contact our Pharmacist, Carol-Anne Davies Jones CarolAnne.DaviesJones@secamb.nhs.uk or any member of the medicines team – medicines@secamb.nhs.uk. They are keen and willing to help you and are an expert resource for us all to use.

 

We know that lots of hard work is already going on to make improvements – thank you to everyone involved in this. There is more we need to do but we are confident, that by working together, we can put the correct processes in place and make them work properly.

 

Daren Mochrie QAM, Chief Executive & Dr Fionna Moore, Medical Director
