About the conference
We are delighted to bring together this collaborative event between the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
There are currently more than 3.2 million people in the UK with diabetes. This is an increase of more than 163,000 people compared to 2012 and is the biggest increase in a single year since 2008. Both general practitioners and pharmacists have an increasingly important role to play in the care pathway of patients with this condition.
This event will explore how we can enable an integrated healthcare approach to deliver the right care in the right settings. It will look at what future models of integrated care could look like and the implications for patients, professionals and commissioners. Closer collaboration and integration with pharmacy services would free up time in GP surgeries allowing GPs to focus on the more complicated cases, or those of a more serious nature.
We will discuss case studies of pharmacists and GPs working in partnership, showcasing how collaboration on the management of long term conditions can be of benefit to the patient, highlighting smarter ways of working and creating jointly-managed services that involve all relevant healthcare professionals, delivering what patients have asked for, as we create a picture of what joined up care in the community looks like.
