Supporting care homes for over 25 years

Boots is always looking for new ways to help everyone feel healthier and happier. We’ve over 25 years of experience supporting care homes and our Care Services team continue to be an important part of that story. From being on hand with expert advice seven days a week, with support to improve patient safety and with training to deepen your team’s knowledge, we’ve lots of ways to help you give the best possible care.

Medication management

We understand how important it is to manage your residents’ medicines safely and responsibly. That’s why we’ve a number of ways to help you keep track of medicines and keep them secure and stored correctly.

  • Prescription management from collection to delivery Monday to Saturday, with daily delivery and two cut-off times for emergency or mid-month medication
  • A 28-day supply of medication delivered to your home at least three days before the medication start day
  • Our paper and computer records provide a clear audit trail for regulators covering receipt, administration, ordering and return of medication
  • We can also supply your home with supplementary Medication Administration Records (MAR), such as Topical Medicines Administration Records (TMAR), so your team can record usage of creams, lotions and ointments

Keep track of medicines with eMAR

Many care providers are switching from paper-based to electronic medicines administration record (eMAR) systems. By helping your team deliver great care, eMAR with Boots can help make keeping track of medicines simpler, safer and compliant with regulations.

That’s why advice visits from our Care Services pharmacists can help you with the complexities of medicines management and look at the use of antipsychotic medication, to help you keep your residents safe.
