The Department will consult on the transposition of the Directive into United Kingdom law and seek views on the need for domestic provisions on advertising.</p><p> </p><p>It was not possible to achieve age of sale controls through the revised Directive so the Government has already moved quickly to take regulation-making powers for Ministers in England and Wales to prohibit the sale of e-cigarettes to under-18s, through the Children and Families Act.

star this property answer text <p>Pharmacy already plays a vital role in supporting the health of people in their local communities, providing high quality care and support, improving people's health and reducing health inequalities. As we move to more integrated care, there is real potential for pharmacists and their teams to play an even greater role in the future, particularly in keeping people healthy, supporting those with long-term conditions and helping make sure patients and the National Health Service get the best use from medicines.</p><p> </p><p>The Department and NHS England's publication <em>Transforming Primary Care - Safe, proactive, personalised care for those who need it most</em>, sets out plans for more proactive, personalised and joined up care, part of which is harnessing the potential of pharmacists. This recognises the vital role that pharmacists have in optimising medicines use, helping to prevent avoidable hospital admissions and supporting people to manage their own care. A copy has already been placed in the Library.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England's public consultation, <em>Improving care through community pharmacy –</em> <em>a call to action</em>, has provided an important opportunity to explore the contribution community pharmacists and their teams can make. This will inform a strategic framework for commissioning wider primary care services in the autumn, including consideration of fully utilising the expertise of community pharmacists in reducing burdens on other health services, such as general practice.

star this property answer text <p>Local solutions are presently being developed. In addition, NHS England has commissioned the Health and Social Care Information Centre to deliver a “proof of concept” project in order to enable 80-100 community pharmacies, across 2 or 3 geographical areas, to access the Summary Care Record (SCR). Subject to the proof of concept, the SCR should provide a platform which will enable pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to view prescribed medicines, allergies and adverse reactions for patients who go to their pharmacy for urgent or unscheduled care.</p><p> </p><p>The project aims to:</p><p> </p><p>- determine if SCR viewing can be safely implemented in community pharmacies and will add value to existing practice and patients' experience by improving quality, safety and continuity of care;</p><p>- identify the optimum model for implementation should the proof of concept conclude that SCR access provides added value; and</p><p>- assess whether providing community pharmacies with access to the SCR has the potential to relieve the increasing demands on the wider healthcare system.</p><p> </p><p>It is planned that the first pharmacies will go live towards the end of 2014, with the project due to provide its findings and recommendations early in 2015. Further plans will be developed based on those findings and will be published in due course.</p><p> </p>
