Macmillan Pharmacy Service Annual report

The Macmillan Pharmacy Service has published its Annual Report for 2014-15.

The service has now been rolled out across all Health and Social Care Partnerships within Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The expansion began in August 2013, following successful evaluation of the Macmillan Pharmacy Facilitator pilot project (2009-2013), by the University of Strathclyde.

The overarching aim of the service is to support community pharmacy and the wider primary care health and social care team to advance person-centered, sustainable, high quality, safe and timely pharmaceutical palliative care (PC) services as close to home as possible for patients, carers and families.

The idea is to shift the balance of care away from the acute sector to a more financially sustainable community based services that will better serve the growing ageing population, reduce pressure on out-of-hours services and avoid emergency hospital admissions.

The annual report is available for download here: Macmillan Pharmacy Service Annual Report.
