CPS Research Project

Tuesday, February 6, 2018

A research fellow, Dr Lee Boag, funded by Community Pharmacy Scotland has recently taken up a joint post at Robert Gordon University and the University of Strathclyde. This is an exciting initiative, the aim of which is to provide robust and rigorous data on the value of community pharmacy services as perceived by the users. The first project in a programme of work will focus on the minor ailment service (MAS). Currently, we have no national data on users’ expectations and experiences. All community pharmacies in Scotland will be invited to take part. This will involve handing a questionnaire to each individual accessing MAS and receiving a product. The questionnaire will be returned by the user to the university, who will then follow-up to see the outcomes of the treatment. It is anticipated that this will start within the next 3 months and we will give you more information in due course.
