Medicines management programme for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
The medicines management programme seeks to improve medicine disposal at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust hospitals. Following a sprint workshop, we were selected to work on communication materials to be rolled out across 300 wards at St Mary’s and Hammersmith Hospitals. We started with establishing a visual mark:
We studied the existing material staff were using to better understand and streamline their function and essential features.
We presented our work as printed mockups in several stages to the Medicines Management team and worked on feedback from these sessions – this lead to a more effective and useful programme roll out.
More than print
We also designed and managed the production of key fobs, badges and fridge stickers. Fridge forms, and algorithms were laminated to ensure longevity in the hospital wards.
“It’s lovely to be out on our wards and seeing the Medicines Matter products being appreciated by our nurses and midwives.”
– Staff feedback
We are pleased to be working with ICH NHS Trust again for a second phase of Medicines Management programme materials.
