Mr. Burstow

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make it his policy to put in place a system of remuneration to support the conduct of prescription reviews by community pharmacists in accordance with the proposals made by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. [57630]

Our proposals for the future role of community pharmacy within the National Health Service will be published in a strategy document which is being developed. We are looking at a number of ideas including services by pharmacists, which might include reviewing patients' prescription medicines.
