Help shape the future of pharmacy and integrated care

We’re hosting two sessions for members to help shape our response to an NHS review of primary care in England.

The ‘Fuller Stocktake’ review is looking at how primary care can help meet the health needs of local populations, working within new Integrated Care Systems and alongside wider NHS reforms.

The review is looking at a range of issues, including:

  • Workforce, including leadership and education
  • Collection and use of data and information 
  • Working with communities and how best to engage with them
  • Physical access to care
  • Non-physical access to care including use of technology and remote consultations
  • Governance and decision making which includes local contracting

We’re holding sessions on Tuesday 15 March and Thursday 24 March at 7.00pm and they are open to members working in all settings, including primary and secondary care. Register here.

You can also contribute directly to the Fuller Stocktake online.

RPS England Chair Thorrun Govind said:

“This review is an important part of how the Government and NHS are examining the future of health and care in England.

“Whether it is delivering more integrated care, utilising new technologies, or developing our workforce, these reforms must have improving patient care at their heart.

“Pharmacists working right across the health service continue to put patients first and I know will play a key role in how we transform services for the future.

“These sessions will help inform our ongoing engagement with the NHS about the Fuller Stocktake and what this means alongside wider changes to the NHS.

“We want to hear from pharmacists working across care settings and I would encourage members to attend.”
