Abstract

Developing a sustainable pharmaceutical care pathway is becoming very important in today’s healthcare system in Scotland. If the NHS is to ensure that communities are sharing the workload with the primary and secondary care services, the pharmacies are one of the key points of contact which need to undergo change. The overarching aim is to see pharmacists become an integral part of the care pathway, contributing to personalised care pathways for patients. The Scottish government state that “this will involve even closer joint working between GPs, pharmacists and other community services to build on what has already been achieved”. In 2002, The Right Medicine set the agenda for modernising and strengthening the role of pharmacists to deliver improved services to their patients. The overall aim would be to see Pharmacists as having a more pronounced role in patient care rather than only the prescription of medicines.
