About the event

Our speakers will discuss their experiences of collaborating with each other, giving examples of identifying unmet needs in patients where the other professionals can provide support. There will be encouragement to connect with your own colleagues locally.

Why it’s important

Many pharmacy staff in primary care tell us that they would like to have a greater understanding of the role and remit of social prescribers. There is scope for greater collaboration between pharmacy and social prescribing to ensure that patients get the right support

What will be covered

  • The role of social prescribers and their scope of practice
  • Examples of situations that social prescribers manage
  • How social prescribers and pharmacy professionals can work together
