Integrated Medicines Management (IMM) is a term used to describe the clinical pharmacy service that improves the safety and quality of care at key points of the patient's stay. The following video describes how this is put into action to benefit patients and also describes the importance of patients bringing their own medicines into hospital, what to expect from the pharmacy team and how you can be supported with your medication after your discharge.
The aims of the IMM service are:
