The LPC has considered recent proposals by NHS England to pilot the employment of pharmacist clinicians in GP practice. The pilot is to be part funded by NHSE and we understand that some local medical practices and CCGs have submitted applications to participate.
Following a recent self evaluation by committee members of the H&IOW LPCs key areas of performance (using a template approach that PSNC has developed with and for all LPCs) the members wish to make this available to all contractors that the LPC supports and represents.
NHS England (Wessex) have written to all pharmacy contractors today advising of the 2015 approach to contract monitoring. PLEASE NOTE THE TIMELINE FOR COMPLETION OF THE INITIAL SCREENING QUESTIONNAIRE
The letter is reproduced below:
To all community pharmacies in the Wessex area
Please find attached a letter from the NHS England explaining the pharmacy contract monitoring process for 2014/15.
There has been much reference to Vanguards in the pharmacy and health press and this short briefing is designed to provide an overview for contractors.
The Five Year Forward View (5YFV) document by NHSE and partners contained a number of proposals for the development of new models of care.
