PSNC has published a toolkit for community pharmacies that are interested in setting up a ‘Walk in my Shoes’ project. 

Based on the 2015 Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) project which aims to bring together community pharmacy teams and GP practice teams to help each other understand their roles, improve working relationships and ultimately provide better care for their patients, the toolkit provides the template resources needed to make this a reality. This includes a confidentiality agreement, checklists for GP practice staff and pharmacy staff, a reflective log, an action plan and an outcomes log.
