PRimage client, The Company Chemists’ Association (CCA), has welcomed the launch of the Department of Health’s primary and community care strategy as part of the NHS Review.
Rob Darracott, CCA CEO, comments: ‘It provides an insight into the areas that the Department of Health see as especially important for community pharmacy as part of its overall strategy. These include a minor ailments scheme, vascular checks and provision of healthy living services and public health interventions. It is good news that there is recognition of the need for pharmacy to have access to the care record, but these good intentions need to be translated into concrete action plans. It is crucial that we make significant progress on all these commitments in the next 12 months.’
