Pharmacotherapy

Working with practice teams and pharmacy staff to develop guidance and resources to support set-up and management of acute and serial prescriptions.

The introduction of pharmacotherapy services within GP practices in Scotland is one of the priorities for the transformation of primary care.

This programme aims to support the development of staff and improvement of GP practice processes to deliver pharmacotherapy services as outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding 2: GMS Contract Implementation for Primary Care Improvement (2021). The Royal Pharmaceutical Society Scotland and British Medical Association’s joint statement supports that full delivery of pharmacotherapy services is essential to improving primary care for patients, GP practice staff and pharmacists.

Working with practice teams and pharmacy staff across a range of NHS boards and HSCPs, we are developing practical guidance and resources to support set-up and management of acute and serial prescriptions.
