C+D clinical editor Kristoffer Stewart interviewed Ash Soni at a joint RPS and UCL school of pharmacy event – Reducing health inequalities – in London last week (January 16).
Mr Soni described pharmacy as a “key place where we deliver health and wellbeing”, with a major role in “helping to reduce” health inequalities.
However, “one of the things that pharmacy has been poor at is capturing the data that shows how much of a role we play”, Mr Soni said.
Pharmacy can talk about all the great things it has done, "but we've never been able to prove that", he added.
Watch the full video for Mr Soni's views on how community pharmacy can improve its data capturing, and the sector's role in tackling health inequalities.
