RPS Wales calls for examples of good practice

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) in Wales is seeking examples of best practice from members to aid the development of a chronic conditions policy.

As part of its policy vision for Wales, launched in September 2016, the RPS sought to establish a pharmacy-led Welsh chronic medication service. The vision was developed in preparation for the National Assembly for Wales elections in May 2016 and highlighted the untapped opportunities to increase patient access to healthcare services that the pharmacy profession offers.

In light of this, the Welsh Pharmacy Board and RPS Wales teams are developing a policy on chronic conditions management. The Welsh Pharmacy Board firmly believes that pharmacists should be fully integrated into multidisciplinary models of care ensuring that all prescribing and medicines management decisions include input from a pharmacist.

To develop a robust policy, RPS Wales are therefore seeking examples of best practice – do you run clinics for patients with long-term chronic conditions? Are you part of a multidisciplinary team managing chronic conditions? Are you an independent prescriber with a patient caseload? If you are able to contribute to the development of this policy through providing information about your role, they would love to hear from you. 

Please send any information or examples to iwan.hughes@rpharms.com
