Community Health Services (CHS) have undergone significant organisational change in the past and with the emergence of Multispecialty Community Providers (MCPs) and Primary and Acute Care Systems (PACS), the responsibility of managing pharmacy support and medicines optimisation in CHS organisations could be changing.

The “Rough Guide” aims to combine information and opinion from experienced CHS Chief Pharmacists, to help those that are new to providing Medicines Optimisation to Community Health Services (CHS). It is intended to provide you with an overview of some of the key areas, with links to where you and your staff can access further information and resources.

This updated version reflects the emerging organisational changes.
