14 Community Pharmacy Manifesto
National Drivers Five Year Forward View Investing in building the public’s understanding that pharmacies can help them deal with coughs, colds and other minor ailments Community Pharmacy Manifesto 5 pledges Encourage patients to think ‘pharmacy first’, and use pharmacy to help relieve pressure on GPs and emergency departments Community Pharmacy- helping provide better quality and resilient urgent care -NHSE Better integrate pharmacy into the urgent and emergency care system self-management of minor ailments Need to embrace the opportunities under the 5yfv Research from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society27 shows that common ailments cost the NHS an extra £1.1 billion a year when patients are treated at Emergency Departments or GP surgeries rather than at community pharmacies. Treatment results were equally good regardless of whether patients were treated at a pharmacy, Emergency Departments or GP practice. The cost of treating common ailments in community pharmacies was found to be £29.30 per patient. The cost of treating the same problems at Emergency Departments was found to be nearly five times higher at £ per patient and nearly three times higher at GP practices at £82.34 per patient. Overall, the study estimates that 3% of all A&E consultations and 5.5% of GP consultations for common ailments could be managed in community pharmacies. This equates to over 650,000 visits to A&E and over 18 million GP consultations every year that could be diverted with a total annual cost saving of over £1billion. Policy makers agree that within five years healthcare delivery needs to change. Far more care needs to be provided local in primary care and we need a radical upgrade in prevention and public health.

15 Example mapping of prescribing: fever & pain in children

16 Example mapping of prescribing: hayfever

17 JSNA There is currently one pharmacy for every 3,402 residents, which compares extremely favourably to the national average of one pharmacy for every 5,000 resident population.

18 than the cost of treating the patient in a pharmacy
Community pharmacists in England could help save the NHS up to £1bn a year if they were contracted to run a national minor ailments service, according to figures obtained by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS). We also have new evidence, such as the recent Pharmacy Research UK publication, Community Pharmacy Management of Minor Illness showing that common ailments such as coughs and sore throats cost the NHS an extra £1.1 billion a year when patients are treated in Emergency Departments or GP surgeries rather than at community pharmacies with treatment results being equally good regardless of whether patients were treated at a pharmacy, Emergency Departments or general practice. The cost of treating a patient with a minor ailment in an A&E department is Twice as high 3.5 times as high 5 times as high than the cost of treating the patient in a pharmacy

19 Statistics… The cost of treating a patient with a minor ailment in an A&E department is five times higher than the cost of treating the patient in a pharmacy Coughs and sore throats cost the NHS an extra £1.1 billion a year when patients are treated in Emergency Departments or GP surgeries(source: RPS) Patient experience is high on the agenda nationally and locally rather than at community pharmacies with treatment results being equally good regardless of whether patients were treated at a pharmacy, Emergency Departments or general practice.

20 Further Context Nigel Mathers, the honorary secretary of the Royal College of General Practitioners: ‘“sensible” that community pharmacists, and not over-stretched GPs, should be the first port of call for common ailments. Such a move .. would take pressure off the demand for a GP appointment and leave more time for doctors to deal with more complex consultations’
