Ewan Maule on primary care networks, the future of pharmacy and what the rise in trade union membership says about the state of our profession

Ewan Maule is Head of Medicines Optimisation at Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group and has also recently been elected as the Vice President of the Guild of Healthcare Pharmacists.

  6. What are the potential unintended consequences of the rush to be involved in primary care networks?
