Community pharmacy is not just about treating illnesses with medicines. Sometimes it is about helping people to cope with their condition in a better way, which may include the use of medicines. In the NHS England document Next Steps on the Five-Year Forward View, there is a very small mention of creating health. Community pharmacy has embraced the healthy living concept through health and wellbeing hubs. Helping people with chronic pain live better lives is an important service to offer customers.
