Pharmacy in Practice is edited by pharmacists with decades of experience, and is here to provide news, insight, information and advice in a way that is different from the conventional pharmacy press.
Our aim is simple: to provide content that is useful for practice and that ultimately may help improve patient care.
Our news focuses on Scotland as we are based here, and because Scottish pharmacy news is generally ignored by the other pharmacy press. You may have noticed that during 2016 we were first to report most Scottish news, as we attended many Scottish events, unlike the established pharmacy media.
However, while our news has a Scottish focus, our other content is useful for the whole of the UK and beyond. Unlike other pharmacy titles, we don’t employ writers or commission freelancers to provide content — we aim to encourage all readers to contribute using their knowledge and experience, and to share that with the profession.
In 2017, we’d like to encourage further cross-sector sharing of expertise: secondary care, GP practices, community pharmacy, research and academia. In addition, we are keen to hear from other healthcare professionals and crucially, from patients too.
Our weekly CPD quiz (Sunday) and ethical dilemmas (Wednesday) are proving popular. If you would like to contribute a quiz, ethical dilemma, or article, then please get in touch. We have more developments planned for next year.
We started this website in earnest in March 2016, and since then our readership has rapidly grown, and we are now the 4th most read pharmacy magazine website in the UK . Thanks to our many contributors.
So, if you have an opinion: let’s start a debate; if you have information: let’s share it; if you have expertise: help others learn.
Please get in touch and help make pharmacy the best it can be for patients.
