Input in Haven Court
Haven Court is a new 80 bedded, purpose built facility providing a comprehensive range of services including long term residential and nursing care services, reablement and respite services, day services and a range of health and social care services for older people, including those with dementia. Services are scheduled to commence in August 2016.
Haven Court provides a safe friendly caring environment for older people, where they are treated with respect, courtesy and dignity. Where our professional team of staff have pride in their work and put the needs of our service users and their carers first, and involve them fully in their care, showing kindness and compassion in all aspects of the services we provide.
We are looking for expressions of interest from Community Pharmacies based in South Tyneside who would be interested in providing a comprehensive Pharmacy Service to our residents. The service is delivered over two floors. The ground floor is short stay non- nursing. Service users with nursing requirement will be supported on the first floor. In total a maximum of 30 long stay residents will live in the building. We will require a safe, responsive, flexible service able to provide and deliver medicines for the residents in a combination of original pack dispensing and monitored dosage systems depending on the individual needs of the resident along with accompanying medicines administration charts.
As part of the philosophy of Haven Court, we are keen to support local businesses within South Tyneside and would prefer the Pharmacy to be located in South Tyneside and deliver the service from local premises.
A local GP practice has been commissioned for the 50 short stay beds. It is also envisaged that this practice will be the lead practice for the longer stay residents. This consistency should enhance the quality and coordination of the care being delivered.
Key deliverables include high quality and responsive services, medication review and input into the assurance processes including support in reviewing medication safety in line with guidance.
If you are interested in providing this service, please send us an outline of the service you could provide. The deadline for submissions is 7th June 2016.
