Audit results requested from all NHS acute hospitals10th February 2012
The Department of Health is asking all NHS acute hospitals to submit results of recent audits of their compliance with published standards for the safe and secure handling of medicines.
The move, to support patient safety, comes in response to recent concerns about the handling of medicines in hospitals and a reminder in July 2011 to trusts of the importance of handling and storing medicines in a safe and secure manner. The results of the audits, together with any remedial action plans, should be returned to the Care Quality Commission by the end of March.
