This service aims to provide the service user and/or their carer with support in relation to medication which has been prescribed. Pharmacists participating in the service will undertake a Medicines Use Review (MUR), from which they produce a Medication Plan, detailing appropriate support to meet the specific needs of the service user.  Whether the service user suffers from cognitive decline or degenerative disease, the service aims to enable them to remain in their own home.

Medication Management Service - Operating Guide 2019 has been developed to define responsibilities within the Barnsley Medication Management System, to support domiciliary care providers to deliver safe working practices.
