Care Forum Wales in talks over administering medication in care homes

Care Forum Wales - minister Vaughan GethingCFW is in discussions with the Welsh Government about enabling delegation of medication administration in nursing homes.

Our view is set out in the CFW Council statement:

  • CFW notes recent developments such as the report by SCIE in collaboration with HC One to enable greater delegation of nursing tasks after appropriate training, with appropriate supervision and under appropriate governance.
  • CFW council reaffirms its position of supporting the enablement of similar developments in Wales with appropriate buy-in from commissioners, regulators (including the NMC) and primary care.
  • CFW council notes this is not about reducing costs and risk needs to be shared by all partners.
