Fuller takes stock of community pharmacy in primary care review
The RSG process needs to be completed at pace so that we can all turn our full attention to the challenges facing pharmacy teams on the frontline, and strengthening relationships beyond the sector, especially within Integrated Care Systems.
You might have seen that members of the NHS team running a ‘stocktake’ of how primary care is currently engaged in local systems met with pharmacy representatives at a roundtable organised by the National Pharmacy Association. The discussions ranged across prevention, urgent and complex care and will feed into the ‘Fuller Stocktake’ of how primary care (including community pharmacies) can best be supported within the emergent Integrated Care Systems (ICS) to meet the health needs of people in their local areas.
Pharmacists, pharmacy teams and “anyone with good ideas of knowledge of effective practice” is invited to join the conversation at #FullerStocktake and https://fullerstocktake.crowdicity.com/
Later this Spring, the stocktake team will make recommendations directly to NHS England chief executive Amanda Pritchard.
