Pharmacists to have greater say in patient care

Pharmacists in Scotland will have a more hands-on role in determining the care and medication patients receive, Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon has announced

The new scheme will see patients with long-term conditions be given a "five-star" service from pharmacies.

Pharmacists will give patients "care plans" for patients with ongoing medical conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes under the chronic medication service.
