It is aimed at people who know nothing about community pharmacy, so its use is potentially for PCN CP Reps as part of influencing work you are undertaking with stakeholders who are new to the sector.  See here:  https://www.kingsfund.org.uk/publications/community-pharmacy-explained

Key Messages / Information for Discussion with your GP Practice 

Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire has produced a Key Messages document that collates the frequent topics that the LPC and LMCs have discussed during the COVID-19 pandemic and the key messages / information for each topic.  The information is included to assist understanding and support local conversations.  The topics are ones that are known to impact on community pharmacy and where improved communications and messages would reduce the impact and workload for community pharmacy.  You may wish to use this document or the messages within the document to support your local GP practice conversations.  Using this resource will also help in creating consistent messages for patients.
