Mike Smith puts the world to rights… Following on from my comments about the excellent strategy for Scotland produced by chief pharmacist Rose Marie Parr, I have just returned from a trip to Scotland, and had the good fortune to meet Rose Marie in Edinburgh while I was there. The strategy is well worth a read – do visit gov.scot to have a look. visited several community pharmacists during my trip and it was encouraging to see some aspects of the strategy already in place. Key is a break away from the obsession with remuneration and thinking more closely about identifying and developing services along with normal practice. Of course, the financial challenges are just the same north of the border as in England, but they have looked at ways of working with the Scottish government to move forward in the face of these difficulties. To see the minor ailment service and the chronic medication service in operation demonstrates to me the way forward in England, but so far we’ve heard nothing but talk. I understand that Keith Ridge claimed at the All Party Pharmacy Group that CCGs are decommissioning minor ailment schemes because “things have moved on”. Well, watch this space, I say.
