Abstract

Few changes in pharmacy hit the national news headlines but a recent announcement by the BBC on 17 March reporting that the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) had recommended that GPs should work more closely with pharmacists based in their surgeries drew considerable interest.

Should we be surprised? Was it because the proposal was from a profession that has long held turf wars with pharmacists over the right to dispense, or was it because many of the public still view pharmacists as a profession that dispenses prescriptions rather than a profession able to give clinical advice?
