Consultation on making better use of pharmacy professionals

Yesterday the government launched a consultation to make better use of our pharmacy professionals, helping to improve access to NHS care and easing pressures on GPs as we work to cut the waiting lists.

  • Pharmacies play a vital role in providing care to people in the community, but there is more we can do to better use our highly skilled pharmacy professionals and maximise their contribution.
  • That is why the Conservative government has launched a consultation to give skilled pharmacy technicians a greater role supporting customers and patients with the safe dispensing of medicines, freeing up pharmacists to provide more clinical care and making it easier for patients to access care without the need for a GP appointment.
  • We are delivering on our Primary Care Recovery Plan and using our skilled pharmacy professionals more effectively, helping to ease pressures on GPs, improve access to primary care and cutting waiting lists.
