NHS: supporting the challenge ahead

Celesio UK has a considerable presence in the primary, secondary and homecare sectors, specialising in pharmaceutical care, related patient services and all aspects of the medicines supply chain.

Our ability to provide health solutions to the wider NHS is second to none, thanks to our vision of ‘a healthier world where more people can live life to the fullest’ and our mission ‘to effectively, efficiently and passionately deliver innovative healthcare services that equip and inspire more positive lives’.

But our new NHS and social care world has many challenges. Translating health policy and achieving integrated care on a sustainable basis is going to be demanding, and will involve multiple agencies, systems, commissioners, providers and government at national and local levels. And community pharmacy has far more to do than provide health services. It must play an essential part in the wellbeing of communities too, particularly in investment, employment, training and sustainability.
