Enhanced pharmacy services: Healthcare consumers' viewpoints

Mortimer, Gary (2016) Enhanced pharmacy services: Healthcare consumers' viewpoints. ITK, 50, pp. 12-13.


The debate surrounding the role pharmacy can play in community health is a contentious one. Supporters claim enhanced pharmacy services will create efficiencies in an already overburdened Healthcare system by providing greater access to prescription repeats, treatment of minor ailments and vaccinations. It has been further suggested that such services may extend to post hospital and transitional care support, health checks, screening and preventative health services.
