Abstract

Community pharmacy contributes to drug misuse management and reduced spread of blood-borne disease through distributing clean needles and substitute drug dispensing. This paper reports a third Scotland-wide survey of pharmacies enabling service delivery to be charted over a decade. A cross sectional postal questionnaire of all Scottish pharmacies (n=1166) was undertaken. Descriptive data were collected on services provided, attitudes, training and demography. Data were compared with data from 1995 and 2000.
