The CCA are proud to support the launch of a new blueprint for a national self-care strategy led by the PAGB in collaboration with partners in the healthcare and pharmacy sector and we call upon the government to recognise the role community pharmacy can play in self-care.
Hear what our CEO had to say below and visit the website here,
“Increased support for self-care has long been recognised as critical to creating capacity in the health system, and ensuring patients and the public are able to get the care they need.
This blueprint rightly highlights the importance and value community pharmacy adds to this work. Recent developments such as the Community Pharmacist Consultation Service are an important contribution, and I hope this blueprint supports this fledgling service.”
