There were 1,833 pharmacists in GP practices in England in September 2019 versus 1,304 in September 2018.
Health Education England has been told it must train 500 clinical pharmacists for roles in general practice by the end of 2019-2020.
Pharmacies should agree ways of working with primary care networks, NHS England has said.
Claims made to support the distinction between ‘clinical pharmacists’ and community pharmacists may lack evidence
The negotiator told Pharmacy Magazine it is “currently considering” what form this engagement might take
GPs are banned from advertising and offering private healthcare services in their surgeries under their new contract
NHS England says it "needs the clinical skills of community pharmacists" for the new Primary Care Networks
Some said the plan represents an opportunity while other warned it was not sufficiently clear on community pharmacy’s role
NHS England chief exec Simon Stevens described the contract as a "further concrete step in investing in and strengthening general practice"
