    Abstract

    NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (GG&C) and Macmillan Cancer Support funded in 2013 the roll out of a new Macmillan Pharmacy Service following a successful development program across all six Community Health (and Care) Partnerships (CH(C)Ps). The University of Strathclyde was asked to support the early evaluation of an evolving training program for community pharmacy support staff within this new service. This report presents the evaluation of the training programme initial testing in NHS GG&C and the development of a questionnaire-based tool to measure the impact of the training delivered on practitioners and the patients/carers they support.
