Pharmacy First Re-launch and Medicines Optimisation Update – Wednesday 21st October 2020 7.00 pm.

We are delighted that the NHS Devon CCG has agreed to reinstate the Pharmacy First service that was suspended at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.  An evening webinar has been arranged to explain the updated service, how it can support collaborative working with the PCNs and update from the medicines optimisation team.    It is really important for a representative from each pharmacy providing the service to attend so please register your places on Eventbrite (

The CCG medicines optimisation team and Devon LPC invite you to a virtual forum to discuss the re-launch of Pharmacy First, and to hear from the CCG team regarding updates on the Medicines Optimisation 2020-21 scheme with GP practices. The webinar is intended for community pharmacists, pharmacy managers and any other members of the pharmacy team working in community pharmacy.

The event will be held on Wednesday 21st October at 7pm and will be delivered by Microsoft Teams. To join on the evening, please click on this link here. (
