Celtic nations streets ahead on community pharmacy

By Richard Thomas, Editor, Pharmacy Magazine The contract talks between PSNC and the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England remain shrouded in secrecy but some strong clues are beginning to emerge. Pharmacy’s negotiators are pushing hard for a multi-year settlement like the one the GPs have, while urgent care is a key priority for the NHS as underlined in the Long Term Plan. A national minor illness referral service is very much on the cards.

However, where Scotland and Wales diverge from England is over medicines optimisation in long-term conditions.
