Wales launches three-year plan for pharmacy

In 2019, a ten-year plan, Pharmacy: Delivering a Healthier Wales was published by the Welsh Pharmaceutical Committee. It aims to provide clear direction for pharmacy professionals in every part of the NHS and meet patients' current and future needs.

New goals have been added for the three years to December 2025. These include a review of how the skills and expertise of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians can be more effectively used to support hospital patients, a review of how automation, electronic prescribing and pharmacogenomics can transform the way care is delivered and looking into how supporting research and development in pharmacy practice can pave the way for future innovation.

Eluned Morgan, minister for health and social services, said: "Earlier this year we introduced the most significant reform of the way community pharmacies provide services since the NHS was created more than 70 years ago.

"A great deal has already been achieved towards our vision, with community pharmacy teams now consistently using their expertise to support patients and our health and care services.

"As the pharmacy profession embarks on the next phase of its journey, I am looking forward to seeing how the role of pharmacy professionals in other sectors can be transformed to achieve even more in the coming years."
