Sore Throat Test and Treat is good news for GPs under pressure

14 November 2016: Ash Soni, member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) English Pharmacy Board, fronted media interviews on ITV News, Channel 4 News and Sky News to explain how making the most of pharmacists’ skills through point of care diagnostics, such as Sore Throat Test and Treat, is one way that safe, efficient direct patient care can be provided close to home for patients by skilled healthcare professionals.“You can walk into a pharmacy and if you meet the criteria the test will be provided and, if necessary, an antibiotic will be provided. Good news for patients and GPs who are under enormous pressure,” said Soni.
