Community pharmacy contractors can choose to provide any of these services providing they meet the requirements set out in the NHS Wales regulations.
Details of the Advanced Services element of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework can be found on the PSNC website
There are variations to the current arrangements in England and these are listed below.
The Medicines Use Review (MUR) service includes medicines use reviews undertaken periodically, as well as those arising in response to the need to make a significant prescription intervention during the dispensing process. The service consists of accredited pharmacists, who have successfully completed a competency assessment, undertaking structured adherence-centred reviews with patients on multiple medicines, particularly those receiving medicines for long term conditions.
As of 1st October 2018, WCPPE will be part of the new organisation Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) .
The current MUR programme and all associated resources will no longer be managed by WCPPE. This resource has moved to the Cardiff School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CSPPS). The School will offer the MUR programme but is currently reviewing the offering and exploring ways it can be developed going forward. In the meantime, if you are interested in undertaking the MUR programme please contact the school at PharmacyCPD@cardiff.ac.uk
