NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate

Safe Handling of Medication

The NHS spent more than £6.8 billion on medicines in 2015-16 and experts believe that more than 50% of all medication is prescribed, dispensed or sold inappropriately every single year. Furthermore, half of all patients in the UK fail to take their medication correctly.

These facts can often lead to disastrous consequences, especially when medication ends up in the wrong hands.
