Dorset County Hospital TCAM Service

Transfer of Care Around Medicines (TCAM) service ensures support around medicines for patients being discharged from a hospital setting, giving them the extra support they need when taking current and newly introduced medication.

Extra support may be needed because patients’ medicines have changed or they just need additional help to make sure they are taking their medicines safely and correctly. Statistics show around 60% of patients have three or more changes made to their medicines during a hospital stay and only 10% of elderly patients will be discharged on the same medication they were on previously.
