New service model for community pharmacy
posted by Research Admin on 27 March 2012
26 March 2012 - A proposed new model for community pharmacy has a stronger emphasis on services to patients with higher needs and a strengthened role for community pharmacists, working in partnership with prescribers, such as GPs.
The 20 District Health Boards today begin a month-long information and consultation process with local pharmacists and a range of key stakeholders across New Zealand to explain the new service model.
The model has been developed over the past two years with national representatives of pharmacists' organisations and PHARMAC. The Ministry of Health and other key stakeholders including GPs have also made a contribution to the development of the new approach.
