Pharmacy’s Future: PRimage client, CCA responds to Pharmacy White Paper

Commenting on the Government’s white paper on pharmacies, PRimage client, CCA Chief Executive, Rob Darracott, tells Judy Viitanen:“The CCA welcomes the significant intent by Government to develop the role of the community pharmacist, as outlined in the White Paper published today. We fully support as a priority area the development of the pharmacists’ long-standing role within the NHS in managing long-term ailments -and in using pharmacy as the platform for promoting good health through widening access to screening services.”

“We are particularly pleased to see a commitment to making better use of pharmacists’ skills to support patients with long-term conditions and manage their medicines and therefore their condition more effectively. We have long argued that there are times in a care pathway – for example, when a patient takes a new medicine for a long-term condition – where pharmacists have been shown to have a significant impact on health outcomes by responding to patients questions about their medicines and by helping them understand how the medicine will improve their symptoms.”
