Pharmacy must move with the times

By Ross Ferguson, pharmacist and writer. We need to move with the times and stop suggesting pharmacy faces an either/or future, either technology driven or community based. Why can’t we have both? I completely disagree with NPA chairman Ian Strachan when he says there are two paths that pharmacy can take: either “mass automation, centralised dispensing and pharmacists working predominantly from GP practices or remotely” or “community pharmacies better integrated with other services, operating efficiently as neighbourhood health and wellbeing centres, and being a front door to the NHS”.

Sector losing policy battle as CPhO faces mounting criticism

By Richard Thomas, editor, Pharmacy Magazine. If there were any small doubts remaining about what the high-ups in Government really think of community pharmacy, they were surely dispelled by revelations in the High Court last month, whatever the final ruling in the judicial reviews. Inefficient, over-subsidised sandwich sellers seems to cover it – a sentiment so misleading, ill-informed and wide of the mark it seems wrong to dignify it with a comment. However, it is the clearest sign yet that, even with the benefit of enormous public support, pharmacy in England is still failing to gain the policy high ground where it matters.
