Medicines Optimisation in Care Homes Pharmacist, Arden & GEM CSU

With more than ten years’ experience working in busy acute, academic, primary care and community settings, Jenny has most recently specialised in the intensive support of care homes. Working directly with care homes teams and healthcare professionals, Jenny has helped to develop and introduce systems which promote quality of care and reduce the risk of patient harm.

Jenny led a clinical medication review team, as part of the enhanced care home service in Norwich, which won an HSJ Patient Safety Award in 2019 and was published in the Journal of Medicines Optimisation. The team provided patient-centred medication reviews, prescribing advice to care home staff and clinicians, and successfully coordinated multidisciplinary approaches which reduced medication errors, improved patient safety and achieved year-on-year cost savings.
