CQC Medicines Report

The new Medicines Report from CQC highlights the importance of having appropriate processes in place for all medicines and includes good practice.

Through this report, CQC hope to encourage improvement by sharing what they have found through inspections – both sector-specific and cross-sector risks around medicines, and examples of good practice that all providers can learn from.  It raises important issues for everybody involved with medicines in all health and adult social care settings.

The report includes examples of good practice and we are delighted that it features a short example from one of our teams within London & the East who have been working within the STOMP (Stopping Over Medication of People with a Learning Disability, Autism or Both) initiative.
