Integrating community pharmacies – a NICE guideline
Published: 16 August, 2018
A new NICE guideline covers how community pharmacies can help maintain and improve people’s physical and mental health and wellbeing, including people with a long-term condition. It aims to encourage more people to use community pharmacies by integrating them within existing health and care pathways and ensuring they offer standard services and a consistent approach. It requires a collaborative approach from individual pharmacies and their representatives, local authorities and other commissioners, and includes recommendations on health and wellbeing hubs, and referrals and signposting.
