Boots Care Services have been proudly supporting care homes to manage their residents’ health needs for over 30 years – supporting care homes to deliver the best possible person-centred care for their residents. Our experienced Boots pharmacists and Boots pharmacy teams offer expert healthcare advice to help meet the highest standards required by regulators.
Over recent years more and more care homes are switching from dealing with time consuming paper-based records to easier electronic medicines administration record (eMAR) solutions. The use of this technology can further improve the care residents receive. We work with industry-leading eMAR providers to bring you the best eMAR solution to suit your needs. Boots want to make it easy for you to give an effective, safe and efficient service by providing you with the tools and support required to help in the delivery of excellent person-centred care.
Along with our eMAR solutions, we also provide access to Boots Care Learning, an exclusive and recently upgraded eLearning platform with over 70 courses dedicated to the topics which matter most to you and your care home staff. Users will be able to find a range of learning resources suited for all levels on a variety of topics from medicines management to condition focused care which offers an in-depth look at more prominent conditions within the care setting such as diabetes and dementia.
At Boots Care Services, we continue to strive to make the lives of residents’ better tomorrow than they are today.
Our new Palliative Care Service provides free accessible support to terminally ill patients.
We have worked with the NHS to create a list of the most vital palliative and end-of-life medicines and are committing to maintaining stock at over 2,000 pharmacies. We have also introduced an online stock checking tool for patients, carers and care home teams to check availability of medicines at their local Boots pharmacy to further aid accessibility.
All Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacists have been given additional training on how to offer specialist advice and support in palliative care.
Please see our video, which explains the service in further detail.
