During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We spoke with four patients about their medicines. Everyone we spoke with was positive about their stay. One patient we spoke with about medication handling told us, �they�re really, really good, they explained how everything worked�. Documents for assessing and supporting patients to self-administer medication were available and in use. Patients choosing to do so were; where possible, supported to look after their own medicines. Patients told us that they had enough information about the medicines they were taking and about any changes to their medicines.
