Presgripsiwn Newydd A New Prescription: New Community pharmacy contract in Wales
Presgripsiwn Newydd: A New Prescription, the agreement between the Welsh Government, the NHS and Community Pharmacy Wales, describes the joint vision for how community pharmacy should be transformed to meet the needs of the people of Wales.
The agreement contains wide-ranging reforms to the community pharmacy contractual framework (CPCF), committing to clinical service delivery, workforce development, improving quality and safety and integrating community pharmacy more closely within primary care clusters.
Importantly the changes are underpinned by significant reform of CPCF funding to incentivise and reward pharmacies that do more of the things the NHS needs.
This session will provide a greater understanding of Presgripsiwn Newydd: A New Prescription covering four themes:
- Expanding the clinical role of community pharmacists;
- Developing a workforce with the skills needed to deliver outstanding pharmaceutical care;
- Committing to quality, collaboration andintegration within primary care;
- Valuing the contribution community pharmacies make to the NHS
