Over recent years, Community Pharmacies have been given the opportunity to provide a range of diagnostic and management services to assist patients and save the need for a visit to their GP.  However, previous work has shown that a number of people are still unaware that they can use a Community Pharmacy to discuss and manage certain conditions without the need for a visit to their GP. Additionally, previous work has shown that a number of people have concerns over privacy issues around discussing their condition in their local Community Pharmacy.
