Clinical Ambassadors in Healthy living

Healthy living medical services can include alcohol reduction, smoking cessation and weight loss services. Over 60% of all smokers want to quit, whilst 23% of the UK population is now classed as obese, and both groups of patients are desperately looking for help. By setting up a smoking cessation service or a weight loss service in your pharmacy you can fill that gap in primary care, help those who need it and create an innovative way to help boost your own pharmacy income. Read below how your fellow contractors have been doing it.
