Professional standards for homecare services

These standards provide a best practice framework for the implementation and delivery of homecare services.

Homecare services, where medicines are provided to patients direct from the manufacturer are increasingly being commissioned. The RPS, working with the Department of Health homecare strategy board, has produced ten standards to ensure patient safety and the effective management of medicines delivered via the homecare route.The standards will also support teams providing and commissioning homecare services.
