Community pharmacy services

Community pharmacy services

Ageing populations mean Community Pharmacy is seen as a place of support and care in remote and rural areas. This was made more evident during Covid. Community Pharmacy was always seen as an accessible care hub. Medications regimes are complex and patients do not necessarily have support with these as they retire to rural areas. This then falls to pharmacy services to support. The closure of many care homes in remote and rural locations mean those with complex pharmacological needs are staying at home longer. This then requires greater pharmacist input which is impacting on service provision. Expansion and resourcing of hospital at home services is vital for these communities.
