Improved asthma and dementia care from community pharmacists under new quality scheme

Thousands of community pharmacists took up incentives to offer new patient services, such as providing asthma checks and undertaking training to become more dementia aware, as part of a programme to improve care.

Figures from NHS England show that 97% (11,410) of community pharmacies are now signed up to the quality payments scheme, which provides an incentive to deliver new clinical services in a bid to encourage more people to use their local pharmacist.
