The global median number of pharmacists per community pharmacy stands at 1.67, and a vast majority of countries and territories (65; 88%) have regulations that require the presence of a pharmacist at community pharmacies whenever they are open to the public.

It is best practice for a care establishment to use as many pharmacies as possible to obtain medicines from, as this provides the best possible price for the NHS. However, it is important to note that it should be the individual patient’s choice as to which pharmacy they use, based on factors such as ease of access or location.

The answer is that it is best practice for a care establishment to use the same pharmacy for all of their medicines. If an establishment has more than one pharmacy that they use, they should ensure that all of the different medicines are being purchased from the same pharmacy.

The best practice is for a care establishment to use one pharmacy to obtain all medicines. This ensures medicines are obtained in the most cost-effective way, is transparent and allows the care establishment to use a single person to administer medicines if they wish. This also ensures a consistent approach when it comes to monitoring and administering medicines.

It is best practice for a care establishment to use a maximum of two pharmacies to obtain medicines. It is important for care establishments to ensure that they have an up-to-date list of the pharmacies they use to obtain medicines. This list should be available on the care establishment’s website and given to patients upon request.
