Additional resources published

As well as the public-facing promotional materials for the service that we have published today, we have also published the following:

Updated implementation checklists

We have updated our implementation checklists for pharmacy owners and pharmacists (previously these were published as ‘getting going with implementation of the service’. Now that more details have been published on the service these have been updated).

Introducing the service to GP practices

We have published a template letter/email that can be sent to GP practices introducing the service; we have previously published a briefing for GP practice teams that can also be sent with the letter/email.

Clinical pathway videos

The videos talk you through each of the clinical pathways and should be particularly useful for pharmacists preparing to provide the service.

Support the call for more funding by recording information about the informal advice you provide to patients over just one day.
