D21 - Pharmacy in Great Britain


Organised by the Local Host Committee


Great Britain is the home of some of the most advanced innovations in pharmacy, from creating exciting new roles for pharmacists in general practices, urgent and emergency care and care homes, to independent prescribing and contributions to the development of new medicines. Pharmacists here play a vital role in our unique National Health Service, as the first port of call for patient care, and in the pharmaceutical industry with innovations in drug discovery, design and formulation that are changing the future of healthcare. Pharmacy in Great Britain is constantly evolving, with collaboration from pharmacists across every sector forming the future of pharmacy. Nationwide frameworks for advanced practice have been developed to ensure pharmacists exhibit excellence in all of their roles, with important work being done on the ever-evolving workforce. Attend this session to hear about how Great Britain contributes to pharmacy on a local, national and global level, to identify challenges and opportunities for innovation in pharmacy, and learn from us what we are doing to find the opportunities for growth in a changing world for pharmacists.
