Transfer of Care Webkit

Transfer of care is when a patient moves from one health care setting to the next, and is seen as key to achieving an integrated, patient centric service where patients get the best outcomes from their medicines. Community pharmacy has the skills and the opportunity to be more involved with an integrated care pathway, designed to support patients manage their health.

This webkit, and the linked documents, aim to support the integration of community pharmacy services within a local transfer of care pathway, to link to key national documents, offer links to best practice in local areas and offer our own guide to setting up such a service.
