Community Pharmacists

Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public and other health professionals in primary health care. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. In England in 2014/15 978.3 million items were dispensed by community pharmacies (92.1 per cent of all items dispensed in the community). This is an increase of 30.1 million (3.2 per cent) from 2013/14 when the figure was 948.2 million. This compares with 85.0 million items dispensed by dispensing practices and 7.8 million by appliance contractors in 2014/15. 14.7 per cent of items dispensed by community pharmacies and appliance contractors were via the Electronic Prescription Service.

Physicians and pharmacists within communities and hospitals should work together to establish common approaches to the choice of medicines to be used, and the role of the pharmacist in advising the physician and other health care professionals should be developed in community care as well as in hospitals.
