Vision Project: A blog from Nuffield Trust and The King’s Fund
The Chief Executives of Nuffield Trust and The King’s Fund have co-authored a blog about the community pharmacy vision and strategy project commissioned by PSNC.
In the blog the project leads describe the opportunity to broaden the role of community pharmacy and to maximise its potential as a key part of primary care. They reference the various workstreams that will inform their final recommendations, such as discussions with those working in and with community pharmacy, examining the barriers that have previously hindered progress in the development of pharmacy services, and looking to align with other ambitions like the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s plans for pharmacy practice.
Both think tanks say that the end outcome will go beyond simply recommending actions to also identify the key enablers needed to make the vision a reality.
