One-stop health centres:What co-location means for pharmacy

Jesson, Jill K. and Wilson, Keith A. (2003). One-stop health centres:What co-location means for pharmacy. Health and Place, 9 (3), pp. 253-261.


This paper examines the potential for the development of patient services that could arise from the co-location of pharmacies with medical practices in the new "one-stop" centres. A review of the pharmacy-specific literature shows limited understanding of influence of location upon service development and highlights a tension between the professional and commercial drives. The aim of the survey of health centre pharmacists was to describe the current patterns of integration in the primary health care team. The study demonstrates that co-location offers opportunities but that there are barriers linked to the loss of traditional commercial activity. © 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
