About us

Geography 

Strategy and ambition

Community Pharmacy services are at the heart of health and care provision and we want to be the main provider supporting and caring for patients in the community and to be central to self-care needs.

We will seek opportunities for community pharmacy contractors by tendering for, and delivering commissioned services to produce a return on investment for members. We will do this either directly or in partnership with other providers in the Central Region.

Public health support

We are able to offer advice and support to Public Health Teams, and deliver services through the Community Pharmacy Network.

The contractual framework for Community Pharmacy now in place means that virtually all community pharmacies will be Healthy Living Pharmacies by November 2017. 

In effect mini Health and Well Being Hubs at the heart of the community.

Strong leadership , and Health Champions in each pharmacy.

Teams that are Dementia Friends , and trained to at least level 2 in Safeguarding.
