Professional services

Professional services provide a valuable opportunity for you to increase revenue, as well as demonstrate the expertise that you and your pharmacy team have and the high level of healthcare that your pharmacy provides.

With this in mind we have developed a range of Services…in a box and offer a wide range of Patient Group Directions.

Services…in a box

Our Services…in a box contain everything you need to set up and deliver the service in your pharmacy.

Typically, a Service…in a box will contain:

  • Pharmacist and pharmacy team distance learning describing how to prepare for and then deliver the service
  • Information leaflets for customers
  • Equipment
  • Marketing materials – Welsh language versions are available
  • Re-usable forms; including customer record forms
  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Risk assessments
  • Data collection spreadsheets
  • Performance trackers

Professional Services

In addition, where necessary, face-to-face training on the use of equipment is provided.

The range of Services…in a box consists of two ranges; those which support nationally commissioned services and those which can be offered to patients as a private service or used to attract funding from local commissioners.
