The healthcare needs of people living in nursing homes are rising due the fact that there is a population with increasing frailty and comorbidities. I work in Group Mutuam that provides healthcare in geriatrics, including sub-acute, nursing homes, primary care and home care. We have Healthcare Teams (physicians and nurses) that attend inpatients in nursing homes; from the Pharmacy Service; we give them support in all areas related to medication.

I have recently started a new post with Wye Valley NHS Trust in Herefordshire.

 

Herefordshire is a beautiful rural county in the west of England nestling in the shadow of the Black Mountains on the Welsh border.

 

I am contracted to provide a service to the Mental Health Trust whilst being based in the Acute Hospital Pharmacy. Although this is a new post for Herefordshire, I have been doing mental health pharmacy since the late 1990s.

A home-based intervention for managing chronic heart failure (CHF) patients had mortality and unplanned hospitalisation rates similar to a clinic-based intervention but cost the healthcare system one-third less, according to a randomised trial. The cost savings were mostly due to fewer days in the hospital.
