Abstract

The University of Strathclyde is funded to provide academic input into the NHS Highland project for 2 years (starting February 2013). The project is to be a demonstration project to inform national policy and will have direct relevance to the new proposal on the delivery of pharmacy services within NHS Scotland, ‘Prescription for Excellence’ (8). This opportunity gives NHS Highland access to the expertise developed through the previous Glasgow program and allows the University team to develop the evidence base for clinical practice within this area, and focus on developing rural pharmaceutical care capacity through the use of a community pharmacy - based practitioner.
