Welcome to STAR Medication
STAR Medication offers a unique and refreshing approach to successfully managing medicines in Adult Social Care settings. All our services are offered to Domiciliary Care Agencies as well as Residential Care Homes and Nursing Homes. Whether you are providing care and support to older people or those living with mental, physical, sensory or learning disabilities, we will help your service manage medication safely and ensure that those you care for get the best from their medicines.
Following an initial consultation, we work with you & your team to offer a bespoke solution to your medicines management issues. Whether you are a small service or a large multi-location provider, we can offer you the advice you need to get things right.
We offer bespoke training to meet the needs of your managers, nurses and carers. Whether you have a group of new staff, a team member needing additional training or if you’re a manager looking to develop your whole team, our unique approach will meet all your needs.
We have a unique & effective approach to auditing & inspecting medicines in Adult Social Care settings. Now that same approach is offered directly to your service. Where shortfalls are identified, we will work together to address them.
Record keeping is an essential part of high quality care. We create bespoke, streamlined documentation that meets the needs of both your team and your clients. All our records will comply with the stringent standards required by regulators & commissioners.
STAR Medication has been created by Maggy Howells in response to a need for specialist medication advice in the Adult Social Care sector. She is a pharmacist who has spent over 13 years as one of only a handful of specialist Pharmacist Inspectors working full time for the Care Quality Commission.
