The 11,500 pharmacies in England play a vital role in caring for the health of their local community. With the NHS now placing greater emphasis on prevention, public health and easing the pressure on GPs, this role is set to expand significantly.
As the number of older patients with multiple conditions increases, community pharmacies are uniquely placed to provide medical advice and clinical guidance on everything from cancer care to diabetes. Advances in technology and the use of personalised medicine will enable pharmacies to expand their remit, while new models of care will see more pharmacists deployed in a primary care setting. These changes will require a major restructuring in the way pharmacists are recruited, trained and supported throughout their careers.
With £9.2 billion worth of prescriptions dispensed every year, pharmacist can also assist the NHS in identifying potential savings. In July 2017, NHS England unveiled plans to reduce the number of prescriptions given for “ineffective, over-priced and low value treatments”. It is estimated that this move could save the NHS £190 million a year.
Join us for the Pharmacy Conference where leading experts will provide invaluable insights into the evolving role of pharmacists in the NHS. See how pharmacists can improve clinical outcomes by spotting the early signs of conditions such as cancer or sepsis, address the skills needs of the pharmacy sector, discuss how to eliminate the cost of unnecessary prescriptions and understand how your pharmacy can support the NHS as it transitions towards new models of care.
