“Clinical leadership of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians is absolutely critical”
The Scottish Cabinet secretary for Health and Sport Jeane Freeman OBE has drawn attention to a number of challenges that currently exist in Scotland while addressing an audience of pharmacists and pharmacy professionals at the International Pharmaceutical Federation’s World Congress 2018. These include an unacceptable level of inequality, made evident by a huge variation in life expectancy in Glasgow.
She referred to the absolute importance of community pharmacy in her speech, citing that the “clinical leadership” of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians is “absolutely critical” to realising Scotland’s healthcare ambitions in the coming years.
She went on talk about the important of making full use of available digital information and technologies as “key enablers” to developing pharmacists’ skills to respond to changing demand.
