The Community Pharmacy Future project was created in 2011 by Boots UK, LloydsPharmacy, Rowlands Pharmacy and Well (formerly The Co-operative Pharmacy).
We set out, and achieved our aim, to design pathways for pharmacy services that will give patients and carers the practical support they need for getting the best outcomes from medicines that have been prescribed for long-term conditions.
The Community Pharmacy Future (CPF) project has started to recruit patients as part of the second phase of its work in developing new pharmacy services. Patients using 51 pharmacies in the North Kirklees and Wakefield areas of West Yorkshire are being offered the Pharmacy Care Plan service
Community pharmacies are able to make significant improvements to medicines adherence and quality of life for older patients who are taking multiple medicines, leading to reductions in falls and better medicines optimisation, a new study shows.
