Prescription For Success

NHS Forth Valley’s hospital pharmacy team once again did us proud, by reaching the finals of the annual Scottish Pharmacist Awards .The event offers a platform to showcase success and achievements in Pharmacy across Scotland over the past 12 months.

The Forth Valley Royal Hospital team were shortlisted in the Hospital Pharmacy Team of the Year category. This outstanding team has worked effectively to deliver a highly complex change in an accelerated timescale, to improve medication safety for all patients, through the implementation of an electronic prescribing and medicines administration system, HePMA. This is the first accelerated roll out of HePMA in Scotland and is to be published as part of national lessons learned.

The team were one of finalists and the winner was the Medical Assessment Unit pharmacy team from NHS Borders.
