I have met with NHS Future Forum chair Steve Field and I am reassured that he does see the importance of pharmacists as part of the healthcare team. The amount of planned listening over the course of the month of May shows the commitment to listening to as many people as possible! The challenge will be to ‘hear’ all the opinions and coming up with a paper that addresses concerns but not grievances.
I am trying to ensure that there is engagement with the breadth of pharmacy but personally am keen to also hear the views of groups that may not currently be well engaged.
Please feel free to leave a comment if you have a view that you want me to hear.
