Enhanced Pharmacy Services
Helping to enhance the quality
of your life.
services have been introduced into community pharmacy
to assist the NHS in improving and delivering a better
level of care in the community.
The Local Primary
Care Trusts (PCTs) review the healthcare needs in their
area and commission (setup) services to meet these needs.
Pharmacies are in the forefront of providing these services.
Some services have begun in some PCT areas, and others
are being introduced over a period of time. Eventually
community pharmacies will provide a wide and diversified
range of Enhanced Services within their local communities.
Examples of some of
the presently commissioned services are as follows:
PCTs identified an increase in teenage pregnancies in
their area and hence commissioned pharmacies to supply
the NHS Emergency Hormonal Contraception for 13 to 19
year olds in that area.
some areas, the PCTs feel that GP waiting times are too
high and hence commissioned pharmacists to prescribe for
patients' minor ailments.
other areas smoking cessation, needle exchange and supervised
methadone dispensing take priority.
We provide enhanced
services in our branches as commissioned by the PCT in
that area. We will keep you updated of new services as
and when these are introduced.
These are just some
of the enhanced services provided by Britannia Pharmacy.
