CHAMPION HEALTH AND BECOME A HEALTH LEADER Community pharmacy’s role in the public’s health has never been more important. Demonstrating to future commissioners the contribution the whole team can make has been an important aspect to the national Healthy Living Pharmacy pathfinder programme. In June 2009, NHS Portsmouth, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Local Pharmaceutical Committees began talking to local BY DEBORAH EVANS pharmacies about the Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) concept. The first HLPs were accredited in June 2010, and since then the concept has captured the interest of over 40 PCTs. More than 400 pharmacies have achieved the HLP Quality Mark and over 1,000 Health Champions are now proactively engaging with their communities.

alongside medicines supply work? • Identify service provision gaps. Investigate what is currently available within your community, the local health needs (the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment is a good start) and the gaps in current service provision. • Engage with local commissioners and stakeholders. Understand what they need and gain their support e.g. Clinical Commissioning Groups, Public Health, Local Authorities, Local Professional Networks. Your Local Pharmaceutical Committee can help you understand what is happening in your local area.

The NPA is working with the RPS, PSNC, CCA and the Department of Health to support the rollout of this initiative across the country, and has registered the HLP logo as a trademark on behalf of community pharmacy.

The NPA has trained hundreds of individuals through its HLP leadership programme and courses for Health Champions. It has further training planned for 2013 for those wishing to develop their leadership around local engagement and stakeholder management.

Make an active choice Becoming a HLP may require little change for some, but for others achieving the HLP Quality Mark may require a greater investment of people and time. Pharmacists need to make an active choice to change and engage wholeheartedly for successful implementation. Deborah outlines some of the key steps to becoming a HLP: • Is it the right business model for you? Does becoming more involved in delivering health and wellbeing services Supported by

Regulator reassures registrants that professionalism is safe. Proposed changes to allow the self-selection of Pharmacy (P) medicines dominated conversations at last October’s Pharmacy Show. The new regulator of pharmacy, the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), made presentations to packed audiences on both BOB NICHOLLS days of the Show to reassure pharmacy professionals and over the counter medicines suppliers that changes to the current P medicines supply protocol will only be made if patient safety and registrants’ professionalism can be assured. Speaking in 2012, GPhC Chairman Bob Nicholls told the packed keynote conference hall: “The GPhC is against fixed rules in general, but if self-selection cannot be done safely, then it can’t be done.” The P medicine proposals, which were first revealed in September in the GPhC’s new draft Standards for Registered Pharmacies, confirm the GPhC’s desire to implement standards based on outcomes not processes. Nicholls said that in his experience supervision of P medicines varies between pharmacies: “Some small independents don’t need to keep P medicines behind the counter as they know their patients and they are not afraid to have conversations; in some multiples I wouldn’t allow this at all.”

Leadership is key

Deborah Evans, NPA Director of Pharmacy (pictured right) and national HLP Lead has been involved in the project from its inception in Portsmouth. Presenting at the 2012 Pharmacy Show, Deborah explained the benefits of effective leadership at all levels when successfully implementing change. “We have inspirational leaders from national pharmacy and healthcare bodies promoting the concept. Local project managers, pharmacists and pharmacy managers are really committing to leading change within their practices. Health Champions are also making a significant difference in communities”.

P Medicines supply dominates Pharmacy Show 2012 agenda

From the audience, Trevor Gore, Global Healthcare Training Manager at Reckitt Benckiser UK, chipped in: “UK pharmacies have not got a great record in getting POM-P medicines out there.”

DEBORAH EVANS

• Have a HLP vision and set clear goals. Agree where you want to get to and what it will mean to you and your team when you have achieved that vision. Agree what you will focus first on by setting obtainable objectives; break down your goals into manageable steps. • Involve the whole team. Right from the start. This will ensure the team remains motivated and feels ownership. • Develop Health Champion(s). Medicines counter assistants live and work in the communities they serve. They are talking to the public every day and may have innovative ideas about approaching sensitive health issues. Mike Holden, NPA Chief Executive and a founder of the HLP concept points out that “effective leadership uses the skills and Continued on page 2

Continuing the discussion on P medicines right through to the last conference session of the Show, GPhC Chief Executive and registrar Duncan Rudkin confirmed the GPhC view and said: “Rules let people and organisations off the hook. It is how people behave that makes a difference to patient safety. Professionalism provides the better protection.” Rudkin told delegates in his presentation, Modernising the Regulation of Registered Pharmacies, that the GPhC will be consulting extensively with the profession and with the public to ‘sense-check’ its draft standards, and that registrants will be supported through new obligations on pharmacy owners that prioritise professionalism. He added that as well as guidance, there would also be new inspection processes, including site visits and face to face meetings with owners/superintendent pharmacists. The approach will facilitate “a two-way flow of information” and will evidence pharmacies’ compliance with standards. He pledged: “Council will not plough on regardless.”

PSNC tells department to pay up on shortages In-house solution still evades supply chain Five years of shortages – it’s time to build shortage medicines procurement into pharmacy remuneration, a PSNC contract negotiator told delegates at a packed Keynote Conference debate held at the Pharmacy Show last October. Peter Cattee, part of PSNC’s contract negotiating team and chairman of the Association of Independent Multiples (AIMp), told the Pharmacy Show audience that pharmacy’s annual efficiency uplift payment should now be enhanced to take account of the actual workload implications of sourcing medicines in short supply. This could see it lifted to a 7 or 8% increase. He said: “Medicines shortages are a “valueless burden” to pharmacists’ daily workload. Time spent on sourcing medicines is time not spent on patient care. How does this fit in with the Government’s agenda to see quality, innovation, productivity and prevention of waste embedded into the delivery of health services?” Participants in the panel discussion, ‘Shortages – the way forward debated’, attempted to suggest a solution to medicines shortages, and NPA Chief Executive Mike Holden said that solutions could include better communication and more transparency, particularly around quotas. “The stock is in the system, we just have to make sure that it’s in the right place.” Anup Sodha, Managing Director of wholesale company Lexon UK, added that a solution could lie in lifting quotas, while restricting wholesale dealer licenses at the same time. He also called for more clarity over the rationale for direct to pharmacy deals.

Representing branded medicine suppliers, Samantha Ogden, membership services director of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, struggled to agree with fellow panellists on the need to lift quotas. Neither did she think that 24-hour supply obligations were the answer. Instead, she suggested that collaboration to support medicines supply during the Olympics should be seen as an example of what is possible when there is “good old fashioned communication”. She said: “We should try and replicate that.” However, agreeing on one point the panel said that the Department of Health has “its head in the sand over medicines shortages” and they predicted that pharmacy minister Earl Howe will just tell pharmacies, wholesalers and suppliers to ‘go and sort it’ when he responds to the recommendations made by the All Party Pharmacy Group (APPG) following its medicines shortage inquiry. The Department of Health had pledged to make its response in November 2012. Holden said the Department of Health had given little indication whether it would support or ignore the APPG’s recommendations, and he warned that even when it did respond, the Government could just adopt a ‘facilitating’ position and would tell the supply chain to “sort the problem.” Numark Managing Director John D’Arcy added: “It will take a “hell of a big public health problem” to force the Government to restrict the free movement of goods, but he added: “Shortages are an accident waiting to happen; it’s a sad situation if it does take a patient to die.” Pharmacy Show organiser and Panel Chairman Michael Westcott revealed that the Department of Health had been invited to take part in the debate, but had declined - “clearly having something better to do”, he said.

WHAT OUR EXHIBITORS SAY We’ve used the Pharmacy Show as a launch pad for our new product and have been astonished at the success. The show’s been very positive and we’ve had good conversations with pharmacy chains and buyers. A very worthwhile event. Martin Crockard, Confidante For us the show is all about engaging with pharmacy organisations and meeting pharmacists and technicians face to face. It’s an important vehicle for meeting the people we need to meet, to get our key messages out and to learn of any concerns. We’ve had a very successful show. Duncan Rudkin, Chief Executive & Registrar General Pharmaceutical Council The Pharmacy Show is a celebration of pharmacy. It brings together all parts of the supply chain and is a great opportunity to see what’s going on, gain some CPD and meet colleagues. For me, it’s a fantastic opportunity for networking. I have loads of meetings here and catch up with old friends. It’s a fantastic event. John D’Arcy, Managing Director, Numark It’s important for us to be at The Pharmacy Show. Pharmacists come here to learn about new products and it gives us the opportunity to engage one on one with them to explain our brands and talk about new product development. Ray Richardspn, Key Accounts Manager, GSK The Pharmacy Show is the best networking event there is. We have been inundated with people on our stand. All of the key manufacturers are here and they make time to talk to us. Being here pays for itself in terms of the time we save meeting contacts. That’s why I make sure all of my senior management team attend the show. Kirit Patel, Founder and Chief Executive, Day Lewis PLC We’d heard that The Pharmacy Show was the show to be at, so we decided to launch our new product here. It’s proved the perfect opportunity to get into front of 6,000 potential clients and we couldn’t be happier. Jennifer Hughes, Corporate Communications, Helix Health The Pharmacy Show is the perfect opportunity to see our customers in a relaxed environment. You get community and corporate customers over both days and all the opinion leaders are here. We would have to drive for hours, even days, to meet the amount of people that we see here. Paul Wilson, Commercial Accounts Director, Pfizer We came to The Pharmacy Show to launch a new product and the show has delivered the right people in the right numbers. James Wood, Product Manager, Meda Pharmaceuticals

The panel then went on to discuss the reasons for continuing medicines shortages, and in a frank exchange of views, Numark managing director John D’Arcy said: “The market is based on free movement of goods and any such market will find its level. If you make as much product as you can, the price of that product will drop, so quotas are a way to control that.” He added that: “Medicines shortages are linked to the introduction of the Direct to Pharmacy and Reduced Wholesaler Models of distribution.” However, defending the need for quotas, Samantha Ogden, Membership Services Director of the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI), said: “Would we design the system that we have today? Probably not. But quotas are a necessary position for now. They are a response to the sizable increase in export activity and to do without them would destabilise the supply of medicines substantially. No manufacturer wants to be in a situation where they can’t supply medicines.”

WHAT OUR DELEGATES SAY The Pharmacy Show is an important resource for pharmacists. There’s a good mix of people here and the seminars are extremely topical. We’re disappointed that we didn’t arrange a stand at the show this year, but we’ll definitely exhibit next year. It’s a great show and extremely relevant. Rupinder Sarang, NHS Development Manager, Merck Sharpe Dohme As a pharmacy owner, it’s very interesting for me to learn what’s going on in the industry, pick up new ideas and have face to face contact with the companies we deal with. It’s very useful for a small business like ours. Nikki Cohen, Director, Pharmacist As a hospital pharmacy technician, I make sure I set aside time in my calendar to visit this show. The technician’s forum was excellent, and there are so many opportunities here for me to take advantage of. Diane Meech, Ealing NHS Trust There are lots of smaller companies at the show that I wouldn’t normally come across and I’ve seen lots of new products that I can sell in my pharmacy. There’s nowhere else you can go as a pharmacist to see this range of products. Mohammed Bashier, Pharmacy Owner This is the only show where I can see new products and brush up on my skills at the same time. Rosemary Hutchinson, Pharmacist Pharmacy is changing all the time and there’s nothing like the art of getting together and having conversations with people to share opinions. This is the ideal place for the industry to share its views. People have approached me with some really good ideas here – I’m very happy to be involved with the show. Peter Bainbridge, Director of Pharmacy, Boots I’ve been coming to the Pharmacy Show for the last few years to get ideas, see new products and the latest innovations. You need to know what’s going on in the industry and this is the place to do it. Rahim Premji, Pharmacist This is a very professional event and it improves each year. The size, scale and diversity of exhibitors at the show are impressive and the focus on clinical services is just right. David Mitchell, Head of Pharmacy, Johnson & Johnson/McNeil This is my first time at The Pharmacy Show and it’s been incredibly useful to discuss the wider issues taking place in the industry, tap into new business opportunities and meet my current suppliers. Neil Rowland-Hall, Pharmacy Partner

Numark MD calls for pharmacists to step up and deliver MURs Medicines Use Reviews (MURs) deliver benefits for patients, and result in more prescription business for pharmacies, so why don’t pharmacies believe in in MURs and why don’t you want to talk to patients? Numark Managing Director John D’Arcy asked delegates in the Pharmacy Show presentation, ‘Increasing pharmacy profitability, patient loyalty and prescription volume through patient adherence to medicines’. He said: “After all, it’s the job of a pharmacist to interact with patients.” Presenting research from Numark and Rowlands showing the

quantitative and qualitative benefits of pharmacy medicines optimisation, he told delegates attending day one of the Pharmacy Show in Birmingham that intervention is a way to build patient loyalty. “Pharmacists take patient loyalty for granted but in this increasingly competitive world, patients will choose where they procure pharmacy services. “Pharmacy has got to add value to the intervention and not just think about how quickly it can bang out the prescription. Optimisation should be at the heart of what you are doing with patients.” He told delegates that medicines optimisation services in the pharmacy contracts - the New Medicine Service and MURs in England, the Chronic Medication Service in

Scotland and Discharge Medication Reviews in Wales – all demonstrated political recognition for pharmacy’s role in medicines optimisation in pharmacy. But he warned: “Pharmacy signed up to this contract. Unless the MUR service is driven home by JOHN D’ARC Y pharmacy, the government will take it away.“ Defending MUR targets as a way to drive home the MUR business in pharmacy, he said: “Pharmacy is a business and like any business, it needs targets to achieve.”

GSK deliver key education for counter assistants The 2012 Pharmacy Show saw GSK Consumer Healthcare deliver a training session entitled Complete Emollient Therapy for Eczema Sufferers in the OTC Academy. The session focused on providing a background to Eczema as a condition, detailed how to identify Eczema symptoms and allowed pharmacy staff to develop skills in counselling and advising patients on better management of their Eczema symptoms. The presentation drew on evidence from a pilot study of community pharmacists’ intervention to promote the effective use of emollients in childhood eczema¹. The study suggested that prior to effective intervention from pharmacy staff, weaknesses in the application of emollient products where apparent and that in some cases the way in which

emollients were applied was actually causing a worsening of the condition. The study also suggested that many patients were not clear on the difference between emollients and steroids and in many cases were applying emollients sparingly as opposed to liberally. The presentation detailed how emollient creams should be applied to help prevent irritation of Eczema flare ups and encouraged pharmacy staff to discuss how much emollient should be applied. The OTC Academy provides an excellent platform for delivering valuable pharmacy learning resources to allow pharmacy staff to provide effective product recommendations and advice.

PSNC brands pharmacy contract ‘a disappointment’ Pharmacy funding has not developed as promised, PSNC’s Chief Executive Sue Sharpe admitted at the Pharmacy Show in Birmingham, in front of a packed Keynote Conference theatre. However, contractors need to think very carefully before new models are progressed: the Scots contract model may have shifted funding from core supply to services, but has it delivered any new money? Speaking less than 24 hours before the latest round of Category M cuts were implemented, Ms Sharpe was asked what the PSNC had done to negotiate more contract services. Attempting to diffuse the highly-charged theatre atmosphere, she replied that during the past two years PSNC had been working with NHS Employers - to E SUE SHARP set the framework for pharmacy services commissioning in the new NHS - but she pointed out: “The NHS is in transit, and not a lot is happening in any contract at the moment.” Leading a panel of speakers representing pharmacy interest groups, Ms Sharpe told delegates that PSNC supported the development of new medicines optimisation services as well as those that reduce use of the GP and emergency care. She added that her organisation also supported the shift of services to primary care, and services that keep people well in their own homes. But this does not necessarily translate into a ‘done-deal’ of new contract services, she said, citing minor ailments services as an example. She said: “Pharmacy minor ailment schemes have been very successful in some areas,

but very unpopular in others.”

benefit from their medicines.”

Also limiting progress are the ongoing conflicts in the GMS and pharmacy services contracts. Fellow panellist Mike Holden of the National Pharmacy Association said: “The two contracts have pushed [the two professions] apart and we need the contracts to be aligned. Mark Koziol of the Pharmacists’ Defence Association added: “Nationally, there is a desire to see pharmacies release capacity in general practice, and this conversation needs to start.”

Urging pharmacies to do their bit, she said: “Pharmacies will need to sell their story to the new commissioners. It is an important time for pharmacies to share evidence; to build evidence of the impact that pharmacy can have and influence the NHS Commissioning Board at the national level.”

Speaking from the audience, dispensing GP Dr David Baker received a round of applause for suggesting that pharmacists and doctors should work more closely. Taking up the opportunity to give the GP’s perspective, he said: “Cooperation and collaboration – even colocation – where we can share information on the patient - is the way forward; we’ve fought each other for over 1,300 years and this has got to stop.” On behalf of employee pharmacists’ Mark Koziol urged PSNC to refocus contract negotiations on quality of service, not quantity. He told Ms Sharpe: “Workplace pressure has a big impact on patient safety and if pharmacies are underresourced, they are dangerous.” He continued: “The more contracts become about quantity and volume, the more targets will be set; that’s why we’ve got to opt for quality.” Ms Sharpe responded that further negotiation on new services would depend on the forthcoming evaluation of the NMS, and giving little away on the report that the Department of Health saw in December, she said: “I am confident that pharmacies will show they can do a lot to help patients to get

Supporting her comments, fellow panellist Bob Nicholls of the General Pharmaceutical Council said: “Your USP is the way you manage medicines – but get into CCGs quick.” She also reassured contractors that the current contract funding model would not end up in ‘the survival of the fittest’. Earlier in the keynote theatre session, pharmacy regulator chairman Bob Nicholls told pharmacists of the need to take control of the [P] medicines supply process. Reiterating this call, Ms Sharpe said: “Community pharmacy is a very efficient supplier of medicines and the role of the community pharmacist - in the control of medicines – is recognised. If pharmacists can rise to this challenge then it is a good basis for the role of the community pharmacist. There is room for a strong, vibrant sector, including independents.”

Alliance Healthcare at Pharmacy Show 2013

First aid emergency burn treatment

At next year’s Pharmacy Show Alliance Healthcare will be showcasing the breadth of its pharmacy offering. Having moved some years ago from a traditional wholesaler model, Alliance Healthcare now provides a broad range of products and services to support both pharmacists and manufacturers.

Water-Jel is the leading first aid emergency burn treatment used by industry, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Services, Sea Air Rescue, all areas of the U.S. Military Armed Forces, Food Services and Formula One motor racing worldwide, plus the general public.

With over 26,000 products delivered per day to all of the nation’s 16,000+ dispensing points — community pharmacies, dispensing doctors and hospitals - being a leading distributor and wholesaler of pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare products is still very much at the heart of what we do. Next year’s stand will include the award-winning Almus range of generic and OTC medicines, Alvita patient care products, Alphega Pharmacy UK, Short Line and Full Line Support, Surgicals, Specials, NWOS, OTC Direct and Health and Beauty products. Don’t miss out on the chance to vote for your ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ for the Alliance Healthcare Awards. www.alliancehealthcare.co.uk or via email awards@alliance-healthcare. co.uk. All entries will be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win a £250 travel voucher. (deadline for entries is 14 December 2012).

Every 25 seconds, someone is burned or scalded in their home. Are you prepared to treat a burn? As the world leader in the burn care industry, Water-Jel consumer products utilize the same technical expertise that goes into our professional burn care products. When a household burn occurs, every second counts. These are must-have burn care products for every home. Water-Jel has also added to their burn care range a new 2-step treatment specifically aimed for people who have radiotherapy. The product is called R1&R2 and is used a prophylaxis to protect the skin from day 1 of radiotherapy.

Supporting the AfricanCaribbean Community

Confidante the revolutionary new sexual health test

There is a worldwide trend within the AfricanCaribbean Community to “go natural.” (Keeping hair in its natural state) and refraining from using harsh chemicals on the hair, which have caused irritations, alopecia and other health concerns.

®

Randox laboratories is one of the leading clinical diagnostic companies in the world; ranked 23rd out of over 1600 companies in the in vitro diagnostics (IVD) market, the only British manufacturer of clinical diagnostic products. Launched at the Pharmacy Show 2012, (and exhibiting again in 2013) Confidante® is our revolutionary new sexual health test. Confidante® is the only OTC product that can simultaneously detect 10 of the most common STIs (including chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis) from a single patient sample. Confidante® uses molecular diagnostic technology that far exceeds other STI tests currently available. The test uses a highly sensitive and specific Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification assay, coupled with our unique Biochip Array Technology, to provide rapid and extremely accurate results. Confidante® allows people to take control of their sexual health, providing convenient and confidential access to laboratory STI testing from home.

In this community it is not just damage that has caused these women to hide their hair under wigs it is being underrepresented in the health and beauty industry. This is rapidly changing; celebrities such as the UK’s Corinne Bailey Rae and Oprah Winfrey are wearing their hair natural showing how beautiful and accepted it is. Black Women are now embracing their natural beauty but many have forgotten how to care for afro hair. So Arise and Shine Cosmetics have been supporting them through educational leaflets, hair management presentations and our sort after product range made with herbs, butters and unrefined oils, which have sold out at International Afro Hair Shows. We understand the culture of afro hair and the need for it to look good and be healthy, hence the £65m and growing Ethnic Beauty Industry in the UK and the $9b Black Hair Care Industry in the USA. We love what we do and we recognise that health is more than just your 5 a day. We invite you to join us on our journey. www.ariseandshinecosmetics.co.uk

Boots talks tough as tough times loom

Pharmacy is not the GPs’ plaything

These are tough times to be a pharmacy owner; NHS margins are declining and consumers don’t know what pharmacies can do. “Consumer perceptions of pharmacy have not shifted in eight years,” Peter Bainbridge, Boots’ Director of Pharmacy, told a packed Pharmacy Show auditorium. Delivering the first keynote conference presentation of day two of the Pharmacy Show in Birmingham, Bainbridge told delegates that pharmacy has to move with the times, and outlined why and how Boots was changing work processes to enable staff to be as customer-facing as possible. He told delegates that new services such as Medicines Use Reviews and the New Medicine Service were “really important; pharmacy has to do the new services to show its commitment to the new services”. He said that Boots would make its dispensing platform more efficient, and use technology and skill mix to deliver services that offer consumers convenience and comfort, and that appeal to their need for personalised patient care and peer support. He said that thanks to 13,000 or so health ‘Apps’ consumers will increasingly come into pharmacies knowing more about their health conditions than the pharmacy staff. He also told pharmacists to expect consumers who have “never been wealthier and healthier – or older and unhappier”. Among the ways Boots will meet this demand are increasing the number of collocated GP practices to over 100 within the next three years and offering innovative services through the Any Qualified Provider contract model, Bainbridge said.

How Day Lewis took on Category M – and won “The latest Category M squeeze is worse than ever before. If you haven’t prepared for it, do it now, or in January you are in for a shock. Category M is not new, and it is here to stay. There will be clawbacks every year and you must make provision for that.” Speaking to the Pharmacy Show on the eve of adding six pharmacies to the Day Lewis network (including three from former Royal Pharmaceutical Society President Nicholas Wood), company Founder and Chief Executive Kirit Patel said: “Service is the key to survival; service has got to be where pharmacy is going. How else but do you deliver service but through your people?”

In a talk entitled, ‘Employee trust – the key to any successful business’, he told delegates that good managers appreciate that pharmacy goodwill lies in people: the people who work in the business and the people who shop there. He said: “It’s an expensive asset, and it needs to be protected. Get it right and your business will go well. Get it wrong and you will lose your pants.” He told delegates that good relationships with employees, built on mutual trust, respect and appreciation, have contributed greatly to the growth of the Day Lewis chain, and he said: “In the past I didn’t show enough care for my people, and as a result they didn’t care for me.” He added: “My employees trust me to know that income from services such as Medicines Use Reviews will be used to protect jobs. That cash in the bank that comes from good stock control is available to pay wages. Today, my philosophy is loyalty, and I find that loyalty breeds loyalty.”

ALESSI DR CHARLES

“Pharmacy is in the right place to help the Government succeed in its health reform,” NHS clinical lead Dr Charles Alessi told pharmacists attending his Pharmacy Show Clinical and Services Forum lecture, Adherence – it’s about a lot more than medicines.

The Chairman of the National Association of Primary Care said that pharmacists were mistaken if they felt they were being excluded from the new NHS - or that pharmacists were the GPs’ “plaything”. Citing the Healthy Living Pharmacy model as an example of care focussed on health and wellbeing but delivered closer to patients’ homes and in a readily accessible way, he told the audience: “We must embrace health and wellness. Community pharmacies are in the community. You are as close to patients as it is possible to be.” He told delegates that healthcare delivery systems are an important determinant of healthcare value as perceived by patients – yet these systems are flawed. He said: “GPs have developed a language that no-one else understands and we have celebrated professional differences.” Looking at 50% medicines adherence rates at one year, he said: “This system doesn’t seem to be working terribly well.” Other determinants of health include: people’s living arrangements and environment, degree of social isolation, employment status, and lifestyle choices. Healthcare delivery systems are said to contribute about 20% of the total healthcare value experienced by patients.
