PharmaPlus Ltd., the leading buying and support group for community pharmacies in London area representing approximately 200 community pharmacy contractors, held their training workshops during a one day seminar in London on 12th April 2015, for members and community pharmacists. The seminar was attended by over 50 pharmacists and the sessions focussed on clinical as well as business training.
Pharmacists were educated on the current challenges in managing Type – II Diabetes, how to overcome them and understand the practical aspects of putting their clinical knowledge in practice. Discussions on setting up pharmacy services such as vaccinations and travel clinics were also held, along with the use of robots in prescription dispensing and cascade software for medicine ordering. Pharmacists were encouraged to ensure that patient care is always regarded in the forefront of any pharmaceutical service.
Hiten Patel, Managing Director of PharmaPlus said:
“A huge number of people in the UK suffer from Type – II Diabetes who are unaware of the condition. We as pharmacists have a role to play in managing the condition as well as minimising other health risks of patients. PharmaPlus has organised these events to provide pharmacists with the necessary understanding to ensure excellence in pharmaceutical practice.
“As an organisation, PharmaPlus sincerely believes that community pharmacy has a much greater role to play in healthcare. We aim to bring regular business and clinical training seminars to help our members and community pharmacists develop the skills and infrastructure to support them in providing these clinical services.”
In 2015 Pharmaplus is set to bring several training seminars – both business and clinical, for its members in an effort to up-skill them to cope better with the changing role of community pharmacy.
