Their aim is that the changes will:

  • Integrate community pharmacy and pharmacists more closely within the NHS, optimising medicines use and delivering better services to patients and the public.
  • Modernise the system for patients and the public – making the process of ordering prescriptions and collecting dispensed medicines more convenient for members of the public by ensuring they are offered a choice in how they receive their prescription.
  • Ensure the system is efficient and delivers value for money for the taxpayer.
  • Maintain good public access to pharmacies and pharmacists in England.

Consultation response deadline: 24th May 2016.
