Joint Working Initiatives Award

 
 

WON

The Community Pharmacy Future (CPF) project is a collaboration between Boots UK, LloydsPharmacy, The Co-operative Pharmacy and Rowlands Pharmacy, the four largest community pharmacy chains. The project was established to design and evaluate new services that will support patients with long-term conditions to get the best outcomes from their medicines and to demonstrate the value this will bring to the NHS.

The CPF project was established in late 2011 and during 2012-13 it evaluated three services: COPD Case Finding, COPD Support and Four or More Medicines (FOMM) Support at sites in North West England.

The results of these service evaluations have been submitted for peer-reviewed academic publication. The evaluations demonstrate that these services can be delivered by all types of pharmacy, including independents, and that they could be delivered at scale across the country. The CPF project team is continuing to look at how it can support commissioners to develop new services that will deliver better patient outcomes.
