Dear Shropshire Council,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information:
Medication prompts are defined as:
The definition of 'prompting' is: 'the action of saying something to persuade, encourage or remind someone to do or say something'. Prompting of medication is reminding a person of the time and asking if they have or are going to take their medicines. (Google.com)

1. Do you fund Medication Prompts?
2. If yes, under which funding budget line/service is it allocated? (i.e Pharmacy, IPP, CHC, DTOC etc)
3. Do you joint fund Medication Prompts with your local Clinical Commissioning Group / Health Funding Authority?
4. How many clients do you currently fund?
5. What is your predicted annual spending for Medication Prompts 2019/2020?
6. How long / since when have you funded Medication Prompting Service?

Please provide the information in electronic format at this email address. However, I am happy to receive them by post if that is more convenient.

Dear Clare Hamer,

Thank you for the clarification.

Thank you for your reply, may I query:

If you do not fund a package of care solely for a "medication Prompt" are "medication prompts" included as part of an Adult Social Package of Care under the assessed social care need requirement?

Managing medicines for adults receiving social care in the community – Extract from NICE Guideline

"Several services can be offered to people assessed as needing social care and support, such as home care, residential care, respite care, daycare and intermediate care. These services can be funded by health or social care commissioners or the person using the services themselves. The range and type of social care and support provided in people's own homes varies, but usually includes support with activities of daily living (which may include help with taking medicines) and essential domestic tasks. "

Dear Sir/Madam
 
Adult Social Care (ASC)  assist with the support of prescribed medication
prompting as an ancillary service where they are already supporting an
individual who has eligible care needs under the Care Act. In effect, this
means that a person who lives in the community in their own address, for
example, can be prompted by care staff who are commissioned by the Local
Authority to prompt with prescribed medication needs as part of a planned
intervention/visit by the carer, and if the medication itself is
prescribed accordingly to be supported with administration during the
planned visits by ASC commissioned care, then it can be considered as
ancillary to that; however, if the need for prescribed medication falls
outside the visits which have been commissioned to support the individuals
assessed social care needs, it will be reliant on the health professionals
involved to support with prescribed medication administration directly
(e.g. GP; District Nurse; health specialist… etc).
 
The administration within residential care homes and nursing homes is
supported by trained care staff within the care home in accordance with
their respective individual roles and responsibilities, and in accordance
with their qualifications. This would include controlled drugs policies.
 
Prescribed medication and the administration of this is essentially the
responsibility of health professionals; however, with the appropriate
training and certification, suitably trained care staff can support with
the prompting and administration of medication which is ancillary to
planned intervention which they undertake as part of care commissioned by
ASC. Where the sole visit/intervention relates the administration of
prescribed medication only, this is a responsibility of health to
facilitate/commission/support.
