Trust appoints two nurses to advanced medicines management role

  • Comment
A Lincolnshire trust has appointed its first ever nurse practitioners in medicines management.

Vanessa Tasker and Karen Day have been appointed as advanced nurse practitioners in medicine management at North Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

They will cover all three of the trust’s hospitals and will liaise with patients and staff on all things to do with medication – including the importance of patients bringing their medicines in with them to hospital, how to avoid drug errors, latest updates on medicines and audit and teaching.

The first nurse practitioners in this field took up posts about six years ago, since then the number of nurses has increased with more than 30 networking across the UK.

‘The main function of our role is to ensure that staff give the right medication to the right patient at the right time and that we do this as effectively and efficiently as possible,’ said Ms Tasker and Ms Day.

‘We are absolutely thrilled to be the first two specialist nurses in this field to be appointed at the trust,’ they added.
