MidCentral DHB Community Pharmacy Commissioning Policy information and links.


MidCentral DHB is establishing a policy to ensure the delivery of community pharmacy services that achieve the Board’s Strategic objectives and meet the needs of populations, address inequities and maximise the pharmacists skills as part of a multidisciplinary primary care team.
The outcomes sought are to:
  • Delivery of services based on health need
  • Equitable access to pharmacy services
  • Fully informed patient self-care
  • Integrated, multi-disciplinary co-ordination to patient services
  • A focus on people centric collaboration between pharmacists – from Hospital to Community.
  • Increasing primary care capacity.
We are consulting on the draft policy until 24 January 2020. Please send any comments or feedback to:
