Community pharmacy framework

This project is looking at ways to improve the quality of healthcare services provided by community pharmacies.

Feedback from these sessions will be used to inform the development of a ‘quality framework’ that recognises the importance of community pharmacies within the wider integrated healthcare system.

It is being carried out by a team of researchers based at The University of Manchester as part of an NIHR School of Primary Care Research post-doctoral fellowship award.
