CALL TO ACTION - We need your views!!
Improving care through community pharmacy – a call to action Community pharmacy is recognised as a key, frontline health service that can and does provide healthcare and advice as an effective alternative to many over-subscribed primary care services in their communities, particularly those of local GP practices. In addition to this they add value as an important triage to emergency services. Our aim is to enable community pharmacy to play an even stronger role at the heart of more integrated out-of-hospital services that support better health outcomes for patients, provide more personalised care, deliver excellent patient experience, optimise the use of medicines and secure the most efficient possible use of NHS resources. This work forms part of the widerCall to Action that NHS England launched in July 2013. The main purpose of this Community Pharmacy Call to Action is to stimulate debate in local communities, with everyone who works with community pharmacy, to find out the best way to develop our integral service. We will ask a number of questions about how NHS England can best support these local changes, for instance through the way that we develop the national contractual framework. We will also work closely with a range of national partners, including Department of Health, patient groups, professional organisations and pharmacy educators, to develop our strategic approach to commissioning of community pharmacy services. In the slide and resources pack is a lot more information and 4 key questions around: creating a ‘pharmacy first’ culture ensuring patients get the best from their medicines integrating community pharmacy into the patient pathway Increasing safety of dispensing Please complete a survey now!

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:

  • High temperature

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible
