Community Pharmacies

Synopsis: This Briefing Paper looks at recent health strategies in Northern Ireland that have led to a central role for Community Pharmacies in promoting health and wellbeing in their local communities, and in the delivery of primary care services to ease the growing pressures on GP surgeries and accident and emergency services. Three Community Pharmacy initiatives are outlined; Building Community Pharmacy Partnerships (BCPP), placing pharmacists in GP surgeries, and the accreditation of ‘Health+Pharmacies’.
