The Changing Shape of Pharmacy in Wales
25 Sep 2021
The Welsh Government vision for “A Healthier Wales” is the reference point for all health and social care future plans across Wales. Pharmacy: Delivering a Healthier Wales is the culmination of significant discussions across the whole pharmacy profession and is a unified view of how, through the better use of the unique skills of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, the profession can make a greater contribution to improving the health and wellbeing of citizens across Wales. This session will describe how we will transform pharmacy in Wales via our roadmap to 2030 to deliver capacity, competence, continuity, collaboration and community. We will explore in detail how Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) plans to develop the pharmacy workforce, which will underpin the Wales vision. We will also consider how the working environment will need to change to maximise the changing skills of the workforce.
