Employers and establishments should ensure that their medication policies take into account the full range of visits and activities. These may include residential visits, visits overseas, remote supervision, and situations where groups might be distant from, or unable to make immediate contact with, parents and medical professionals.
As it is unlikely that any medication policy will cover every possibility, the policy should be written in such a way as to allow staff the flexibility to use their judgement in doing what is best for the well-being of children and young people.
