Commenting on the Policy Exchange Report ‘Medical Evolution’
Dr Nick Thayer, Head of Policy, The Company Chemists’ Association said:
“Policy Exchange’s timely report sets out numerous pragmatic solutions and recognises the importance of pharmacy in efforts to improve the primary and secondary care interface. Despite the Discharge Medicines Service (DMS) proving its worth in reducing readmissions, patients across England continue to
face a postcode lottery. Improved patient outcomes around the transfer of care need a DMS which is embedded into everyday practice. It’s now time to truly harness pharmacists’ skills as experts in medicines at the primary-secondary care interface”.
