Supervised Consumption of Prescribed Medicines - Imaan Pharmacy, Harehills

Why is supervised consumption of prescribed medicines important?

 

When a pharmacist or GP prescribes a patient their medication, the prescriber has a duty of care to their patients. Safety of the patient is a necessity when they’re consuming medication that is considered high-risk. Drug misuse has been and continues to be a prominent issue facing the health of the general public. This extends to medication prescriptions too. If supervision is provided for those who need it, then it can drastically reduce the risk of harm to the individual, their family and the local community.

 

Pharmacist’s role in supervised consumption of prescribed medicines:

 

Our pharmacists ensure the supply of medicines to patients is accurate and is clinically appropriate. In some cases, prescribers request that the administration of the medication is also supervised.

 

Drug dependency

 

Our pharmacists will work closely with those who take illegal drugs through the supervised consumption of prescribed medicines service. They will do this with the dispensing of substitute drugs – for instance, methadone, buprenorphine and suboxone – that allow the user to detox and gradually withdraw from their dependency. Pharmacists will monitor and support those under the supervised consumption service, so they are getting the best use out of their medication.

 

Medication that isn’t dependency-based

 

If the medication you are receiving under your prescription isn’t dependency related, but still placed under supervised consumption by your GP or prescriber, then you will be offered impartial and professional advice during your supervision meetings to make sure you are consuming the medication correctly. If you feel that you require extra support, your pharmacist can refer you to a specialist carer or your GP.

I would like to thank all staff at Imaan Pharmacy for their excellent service when my husband and I went for our covid boosters today. Warm, efficient welcome; comfortable, seated wait (we were a bit early); considerate and efficient administration of vaccine for us both. Well done - I wish you were nearer to our home!

I came in as a first year pharmacy student, looking for work experience, however, having had a few hours of previous experience, at a different pharmacy, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy my time at Imaan pharmacy, Leeds, but as soon as the first day started, I felt positive energy from all the staff (the type of energy I would not have expected from a pharmacy). I’d highly recommend, pharmacy students, looking for experience to get experience here, as it’s not too busy so you won’t feel pressured when completing tasks. Both pharmacists that work here, are helpful and give great advice on career paths as a pharmacist, prereg and what to expect in the up coming years at university. The dispenser that I shadowed, was great at her job and gave me many opportunities to help around the pharmacy and gain experience in many areas of pharmacy. The counter assistant is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and will always ask you if you want a cup of tea. I’m grateful for the experience they gave but also for how patient they were with me, even when I made mistakes.
