The Case for Community Pharmacy, with the Rt Hon Sir Kevin Barron MP

18th July 2017
  • ResPublica

A rising demand for healthcare services, combined with an ageing population and the increasing prevalence of chronic ailments like diabetes, is stretching the capacity of NHS England. At the same time, pressures on central and local health budgets have restricted the ability to train, hire and retain enough doctors and nurses to meet the country’s health needs.

There is a transformative potential of community pharmacies in their ability to offer a range of comparable healthcare services to GPs at a fraction of the cost to Government. A more proactive role for community pharmacies could represent a workable solution for shrinking local health budgets within the areas of greatest need.

We will be joined by the Rt Hon Sir Kevin Barron MP, Chair of the All-Party Pharmacy Group, at our roundtable, which will feed into ResPublica’s work on this matter.
