Community Pharmacy Patient Safety Group - Priorities for 2018

The Community Pharmacy Patient Safety Group was formed by Community Pharmacy Medical Safety Officers uniting in their commitment to advance patient safety culture and practice. Each year, the group meet and set out some core priority areas to work on.

Three years ago all large community pharmacy organisations, and the NPA on behalf of independent pharmacies, were required to identify a named Medication Safety Officer to oversee safety improvement and medication error reporting and learning across their organisation.

The group met in November 2017 and agreed the following priorities for 2018.
