Community pharmacy integral to PCNs

It is important for community pharmacy to work through how they can best support the delivery of patient care at a local level.  In many areas the Covid-19 challenge has enhanced relationships with practices and PCNs with the result of closer working. 

This article by Julia Sutton-McGough reflects on previous work with community pharmacy leaders who described different experiences when trying to join PCN discussions.  Our facilitated session provides an opportunity for community pharmacy to have headspace to consider the potential advantages to patients, practices and opportunities for closer working with the PCN. It prepares the ground for effective agreements at a local level as to the role community pharmacy can play.

“Excellent training – giving a bit of confidence and the understanding that I am not along in facing the difficulty of engagement with the rest of the PCN” – Delegate from Humber LPC community pharmacy training, September 2020
