MOIC complied this report  and captured the changes to pharmacy services that were implemented in the Health and Social Care (HSC) service in Northern Ireland during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, between March and May 2020.

It describes the wide range of interventions by pharmacy teams that were necessary to ensure that patients and the public had access to medicines and pharmaceutical care throughout the emergency.

The review makes a number of recommendations for actions needed to prepare for future waves of the pandemic and inform changes needed to support the longer term rebuilding of HSC services.
