Pharmacists learn how to 'Get it on time'

Our 'Get it on time' campaign has been a great success across the UK and has even been used abroad in Canada and the USA.

While people with Parkinson's are at the heart of the campaign, those healthcare professionals working with people with the condition are integral to its success, such as GPs, hospital and community nurses and community pharmacists.

We recently met with the Department of Health's Chief Pharmacist Martin Stephens and Jonathan Mason, to talk about the campaign reinforcing how important it is for people with Parkinson's to get their medication on time and what part pharmacists can play in this.

After the meeting, Martin Stephens wrote a fantastic blog and Jonathan Mason appeared in an online film for Chemist and Druggist (C+D) magazine's website.

Both highlighted C+D's 41,000 unique users – of which the majority are community pharmacists – about the importance of supporting people with Parkinson's to get their medication on time and some of the great work already taking place in hospitals and pharmacies across the country.

In particular, the pieces focus on the vital importance of listening to people with Parkinson's, their families and carers and finding out what support they need to get their medication on time.
