The Norfolk Medication Policy was created to provide consistency within the home care market around medication administration. It was written by The Norfolk Medicine Support Service alongside the Medication Working Group. It is a document which contains guidance and information on areas such as training and competency, and audit and risk management. The Norfolk Medication Policy applies to home care, supported living, housing with care and reablement units.
There are a number of resources available to home care providers (including housing with care, supported living and reablement services) to support them in the safe management and administration of medications.
The Medicine Support Service offer medication administration courses for home care, supported living, reablement, housing with care and day services.
There are two types of course:
Initial medication training (full day) - £35 per person
Refresher medication training - £25 per person
Refresher training should be undertaken at least every three years (two years for Norfolk County Council workers).
