Community pharmacies

Community pharmacists were known in the past as chemists. Like GPs, community pharmacists are part of the NHS family. Many are open long hours when other health care professionals are unavailable. 

The traditional role of the community pharmacist as the healthcare professional who dispenses prescriptions written by doctors has changed. In recent years community pharmacists have been developing clinical services in addition to the traditional dispensing role to allow better integration and team working with the rest of the NHS. Most pharmacies now have a private consultation area specifically for confidential or sensitive discussions.
