Connect with Pharmacy

Connect with Pharmacy uses PharmOutcomes to enable patients to be referred from hospital to their community pharmacy. This allows patients who have been identified in hospital as needing additional support with their medicines to be referred, (through a safe and secure digital platform), to their local community pharmacy when they are discharged. 

The initiative has shown that patients who see their community pharmacist after they've been in hospital are less likely to be readmitted and, if they are, will have a shorter length of stay.

 

This service has now been successfully rolled out from the following hospitals:

  • Airedale General Hospital
  • Bradford Royal Infirmary
  • Calderdale & Huddersfield 
  • Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust
  • Leeds & York Partnership Trust
  • The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
  • South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
 
The service in Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust has been awarded Highly Commended from the 2020 Time to Shine Awards in the Digital Category.
