Andy FoxPrincipal Pharmacist Risk

My role

I lead on medication safety for the trust. In addition I am the risk lead for the clinical support care group and a paediatric pharmacist. 


I have improved the quality of medication error reporting by rationalising the coding system. I have recently obtained funding for two members of staff to join a medication safety team. This will really support the medication safety agenda. I have developed the trust risk register in a web-based format and I am delighted that this is now routinely used across the trust by both frontline staff and executives. I have also had the pleasure of organising and chairing a national meeting of the neonatal and paediatric pharmacists' conference.

Future aspirations

I hope to develop training packages for nurse administration. The development of electronic prescribing and administration records will be a huge challenge in terms of safe implementation I look forward to being involved closely with this.

Outside interests
