Care home resources

Resources such as guidelines, policies and e-learning platforms to support care homes, General Practitioners and other primary care prescribers in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG.  

We have set up the Care Home Medicine Enquiry (CHME) service to support our care homes with structured medication reviews, medicines shortages, new resident medicine queries, discharge medication queries, new admissions, medication storage, waste processes and training on safe use of medicines.

The CHME has a dedicated secure nhs.net email address. The address is capccg.carehomemedicines@nhs.net.  This email account is checked regularly Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm excluding bank holidays. 

If you have an urgent query, please contact 07623 942732 and leave a message. Any queries received after 4.30pm on a Friday will be addressed the following Monday morning unless it's a bank holiday in which case it will be actioned the following normal working day.

Anything urgent related to medicines which requires a response outside these operational hours, please contact your local community pharmacy (bank holiday opening times) or access www.nhs.uk. Alternatively, we will respond to your e-mail upon our return.
