CQC Compliant Drug & Medications Management

Subsequently, all care services are expected to ensure that medicines are received, handled, stored, administered, disposed of and recorded in accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements, as well as best practice recommendations.

The QCS Medications Management Module is highly effective at achieving compliance in this demanding area. The QCS medication audit tool helps you ensure this is the case while the medication risk assessment forms ensure that risk areas are not overlooked. This module was designed to help you manage medications with confidence through a stable and secure medications policy.

    QCS has been a life saver for my business! We are new business just starting up with so much to get right at the beginning. Right from the start QCS has provided us not only with practical support with the policies and procedures, which by the way saved us valuable time, they have also been available for general advice and specialist advice when needed. So far a quick turnaround enabling us to get on with the task of setting up our business in a timely manner.

It's a comfortable feeling that there is always someone at the end of the phone if you get stuck, nothing is too much trouble. QCS has proved great value for money!
