Plea to government to reconsider community pharmacy services

The All Party Pharmacy Group (APPG) has called on the government to develop new community pharmacy clinical services, building on the supply of medicines as a platform for health interventions, and to work with PSNC to reach an agreed funding settlement and avoid an imposition on the sector.

The APPG’s report of its inquiry into primary and community care called on the government to reach agreement with community pharmacy about the future. An imposed funding arrangement would send unhelpful signals to the sector and risk hampering development, it said. The report also called on the government to address concerns about pharmacy closures.
