Pharmacists pledge to take on work from Darzi review

Pharmacists are keen to do the work to enable the goals of the Darzi review to be realised.

Howard Duff, director for England at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, said: ‘The challenge that this strategy lays down to all healthcare professionals is to help people live healthier lives.

‘Pharmacy is ready to take up this challenge and to play its part in delivering preventative services such as vascular risk assessments, helping people stop smoking, tackling obesity and the management of long-term conditions.''
