PSNC Briefing 041/17: ‘Walk in my Shoes’ toolkit (June 2017)

This PSNC Briefing provides a toolkit for community pharmacy contractors or LPCs to use who are interested in setting up a ‘Walk in my Shoes’ programme to bring together community pharmacy teams and GP practice teams to help each other understand their roles, improve working relationships and ultimately provide better care for their patients.

PSNC Briefing 041/17: ‘Walk in my Shoes’ toolkit

Background to ‘Walk in my Shoes’
In 2015, Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) commissioned a ‘Walk in my Shoes’ Inter-Professional Exchange project in which staff from GP practices were given the opportunity to visit community pharmacies and community pharmacy staff were given the opportunity to visit GP practices. The idea was to give GP teams and pharmacy teams the opportunity to experience life in primary care from a different perspective, and to learn with and from each other to build relationships, improve systems and identify solutions to local problems together.

Acknowledgment
We are very grateful to Lewisham CCG for sharing their ‘Walk in my Shoes’ toolkit with us, which we have used as the basis for this toolkit.
