The announcement that Sainsbury’s pharmacists are being encouraged to identify carers and signpost them to local care organisations (1) is a great idea which we welcome at bookapharmacist.com.
The idea works on a number of levels:
- It will encourage pharmacist engagement with this group of customers.
- It will ultimately mean that those at need get the help they are entitled to through signposting and targeted healthcare services.
This is the kind of blue sky thinking we encourage at bookapharmacist.com.
