adverse events reporting
For healthcare professionals only
Several months have now passed. The pharmacy team have been charging for deliveries in that time. The pharmacy owner notices that the pharmacy prescription item numbers have decreased significantly in that time. The team conduct an analysis of why this might be happening and it turns out that the other pharmacy in the village is offering free deliveries.
Given the circumstances would you reinstate the free delivery service?
Do you feel that the NHS should pay for medication deliveries from community pharmacy?
