PSNC Briefing 026/16: PSNC’s counter proposal to the Government’s plans for community pharmacy in 2016/17 and beyond (April 2016)

An important part of PSNC’s response to the letter of 17th December 2015 has been a counter proposal setting out how community pharmacy could use its unique skills, accessibility and contact with the public and patients to reduce NHS costs and improve quality.

The counter proposal sets out how community pharmacy services, including an emergency supply of medicines service, could be used to generate the savings the NHS needs to make through pharmacy, without a cut in funding.
