Pharmacy included in DoH review of urgent care services

Services provided by pharmacists are among those included in a Department of Health discussion document on urgent care launched by health minister Lord Warner this week.

The DoH is seeking views from staff and service users on how urgent care services can best “work together to create services that respond more effectively to local patients’ needs”.

The review will cover: pharmacists, accident and emergency, GPs, NHS Direct, NHS walk-in centres, minor injuries units, local out-of-hours primary care providers, ambulance services, urgent social services and crisis resolution teams for mental health users.

Comments on “Direction for travel for urgent care”, which is available from the DoH website, can be submitted until 5 January 2007
