Pharmacy Voice and PSNC, with RPS support, have launched the next phase of the Community Pharmacy Forward View project, with a new website and report outlining a framework for delivering the vision.
The 'Making it Happen' report sets out implementation pathways for the three future roles described in the CPFV. The pharmacy bodies are inviting feedback on the pathways and are calling on national NHS leaders and the government to work with the sector to develop and implement the CPFV plan.
They believe that the following are necessary to deliver the CPFV:
Pharmacy Voice director of policy Elizabeth Wade said: "The launch of Making it Happen shows that the sector not only has broad ambition and vision, we also have a plan. Working with colleagues across the community pharmacy network, and based on feedback on the initial vision document, we have been developing an outline implementation framework to start turning that vision into reality. Achieving this will require coordinated effort from leaders within the community pharmacy sector, local and national commissioners, health and care partners, the government and national NHS bodies and other stakeholders."
