Preparation of medicines in clinical areas by pharmacy staff: the legal and regulatory framework

This document has been prepared to inform the professional judgment which a Chief Pharmacist needs to make if asked to advise their Trust’s senior management about the value-added services which pharmacy staff working in clinical areas can contribute to patient care. It neither encourages nor discourages any specific course of action. The final decision about the course of action most appropriate for a particular organisation rests with the Chief Pharmacist and their organisation’s clinical governance committee.
