Cogora’s digital publication for pharmacists has extended its news and clinical content to include pharmacists working in general practice and in Primary Care Networks (PCNs).
Plans have kicked off with the launch of The Pharmacist PRACTICE newsletter, bringing regular news, updates and CPD to the growing general practice pharmacy sector.
The initiative reflects the increasing value that pharmacists bring to the general practice team, with the number of pharmacist roles being rapidly expanded by NHS funding.
Over 3,000 pharmacists in PCNs and general practice in England now work closely with GPs – bringing their specialist knowledge of medicines, side effects, cost effective prescribing and the support of patients with their medication and long-term conditions.
The Pharmacist has a long track record in delivering news and information to community pharmacy, championing the information needs of independent pharmacy teams. The value of the profession has only been reinforced during the Covid pandemic.
The Pharmacist will work to help grow synergy in the pharmacy community, across PCNs, general practice and community pharmacy.
This year, The Pharmacist team has also relaunched the brand’s website, thepharmacist.co.uk, enhancing the content, structure and usability of the site.
