Making Time Pharmacy

Your Health Matters and Easy on the I are proud to report their involvement as partners in the Making Time Pharmacy project, aimed at making sure people with learning disabilities get the best service they can from their local pharmacy and launched by NHS Leeds North Clinical Commissioning Group and Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire. The project was set up after listening to the views of people who are currently using Learning Disability Care services, and is a joint development between the NHS , Leeds City Council and Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire.

This pilot scheme will initially run until June 2016, in 24 pharmacies across the south and west of the city, supporting around 200 individuals.

Through creating new relationships with the teams in pharmacies, the ‘Making Time’ project will ensure people living with a learning disability are given more time when visiting their pharmacy. This is expected to help with the identification of new conditions and ensuring that the correct medicines are being dispensed and used in the best possible way.

Copies of the easy read leaflets are available to download here.
