Celebrating 20 years as a market leader Boots Care Services provides services designed to help staff in Care Homes deliver the best possible care for their service users.
The system has been developed to give service providers a simple to use medication storage, handling and administration system. The system complies with all relevant legislation and good practice. Boots MDS has many benefits for both care homes and service users. All medicines are packed into separate packs, allowing the service user to retain the freedom to take their own medication. Medicines are placed in separate compartments allowing the service user to be given the correct medicine and dose at the correct time. Reminder cards are included to ensure that the service provider does not forget any medicines that are not packed in the MDS system (ie: liquids). The time spent completing the drug round is reduced, which means that service providers have more time to spend caring for the service users. The system comes with all the paperwork necessary to ensure that clear audit trails are available to prove that the home is operating to the highest government standards.
Along with the system, support is available via specific modules of training covering various topics including; the use of the system, detailed information regarding common medicines, side effects and dosages.
Further support is provided via our Care of Medicines range of training, which is fully accredited to the National Minimum Standards and meets the key learning requirements for both care regulators and the Skills For Care authority. Don’t worry if Boots does not provide your medication dispensing service you can still find a suitable course among The Care of Medicines range, including a specialist course if you work in Domiciliary Care.
For more details on how we can help you with your individual care and training needs please email us at email@example.com, or call on 0115 949 4047 and ask for the Care Services team.

Until October 2006 GRP Finance was known as G R Patrick & Company (Finance) Ltd and was part of the G R Patrick Group, a name synonymous with the care sector for many years and well known to National Care Association members. Following the split up of the Group at that time, GRP Finance has continued to flourish as an independent finance broker, providing specialist mortgages and business development loans to the care home market.
With over 20 years’ experience, GRP Finance is a Preferred Business partner of the National Care Association and is able to use its considerable expertise to arrange competitive funding packages tailored to suit individual care home owners. As a broker it has access to all the major banks and other principal lenders and is able to make informed comparisons while sourcing the most appropriate financing. Consequently GRP Finance can save home owners both time and money - as well as considerable frustration - at a time when funding is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain.
As director Richard Nunn observed, “Over the last 18 months GRP Finance has established itself under its changed identity and build on its many years of experience. It continues to grow and we look forward to the opportunities ahead, serving our many clients in the care sector and developing our close relationship with the National Care Association.”
