Professional standards for community pharmacy services Building professional standards for community pharmacy services.

Community pharmacists should have a framework of professional standards to build upon.

Developing these standards will help us create a framework to deliver consistent, high quality pharmacy services for the people who use them. 

We'll speak to community pharmacists, community pharmacies, patients and other stakeholders throughout 2019 to help us develop these standards.
