Details of the skills, knowledge and role of the Pharmacy Carers Champion.
Pharmacies hold a unique position in terms of their accessibility, the frequency with which many carers visit their local pharmacy and the supportive and professional relationship they develop with regular customers.
The Carer-friendly Pharmacy Pilot was part of a programme of work funded by the Department of Health in its implementation of the National Carers Strategy through the ‘Supporting Carers in Primary Care Programme’.
Pharmacies are visited by about 1.6 million people every day in England so they are ideally positioned to identify carers of all all ages including young carers. They can therefore play a key role in the early initiation of assessment and support which can be life changing.
The Carers’ Hub can be used in consultation with carers and local services as a tool to map local carer need and service provision.Area of Care:I work in:
