Report aims to empower communities and improve lives

Working closely with local communities to tackle health inequalities and help everyone live healthier lives is the central theme of a report published today as part of the work progressing under the Health and Social Care Transformation Programme.

This week, Community Development and Health Network (CDHN) celebrated funding their 800th Building the Community-Pharmacy Partnership (BCPP) project.

This milestone coincided with BCPP having invested a total of £5.3 million in grants to bring community and pharmacy together to tackle health inequalities.

At CDHN we were delighted by the successes of so many of the Pharmacists who have been involved with BCPP.  At both the Pharmacy in Focus Awards and NI Healthcare Awards we nominated our Pharmacists for all the excellent work that they do in their BCPP projects and we delighted to see so many of them named as finalists.
