Pharmacists are at the frontline of healthcare and are often the first port of call for members of the public. They have taken on an expanded role in healthcare, are providing more clinical services and are becoming even more integrated into the primary care landscape to help the NHS meet the challenges of an ageing population and tightening budgets.
Our readers are the pharmacists who are receptive to change – the early adopters that embrace the developing landscape, pushing their businesses forward.
