Davidsons Chemist has been providing a comprehensive community pharmacy service to towns and rural communities across Scotland for over 100 years.
Care homes across Scotland benefit from the services provided by our network of more than 40 community pharmacies, backed by the support and expertise from senior staff at Head Office.
This personal service enables you to develop a strong working relationship with your local pharmacist and provide the optimum level of care for your clients.
Every care home is different, and it is important that we recognise this and provide the best service that we can. We believe it is important to work with each individual care home to tailor our service accordingly.
We can provide free online training packages on the administration of medication for the care services we supply medication to. We can also provide guidance on how to assess staff competency on a regular basis, to ensure your staff are always working to the highest standards. You can be sure that our training reflects the latest guidance from the Care Inspectorate and from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain.
Our pharmacies will carry out regular audits in line with local health board arrangements. We also provide additional visits when needed. We will look at storage of medication, ordering systems, recording of administration of medication and provide appropriate feedback.
