Patient's Corner

Welcome to the Patient Information Corner

Safety in Practice is a quality improvement programme for community pharmacies and general practice (GP) clinics. It helps your community pharmacy & GP team improve their processes, ultimately leading to better care for you. If your pharmacy or GP clinic is displaying a sign showing their enrolment in the Safety in Practice programme, please support them on this journey by allowing them to trial new ideas and processes.

What does this mean for me?

If your pharmacy is part of the Safety in Practice programme there might be a more detailed discussion when collecting medicines, and you might receive a phone call afterwards to make sure you know important information about your medicine. If you GP is part of the programme, they will be double checking their processes and records to make sure you are appropriately monitored if you taking certain medications.
