Lloydspharmacy, Hull PCT and GSK

Executive Summary

Lloydspharmacy, Hull PCT and GSK are working together to improve the quality of life of patients who suffer from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Lloydspharmacy, GSK and Hull PCT have committed resources to support this project, which will run from September 2011 to April 2012.

  • Improve patient outcomes by enabling COPD patients to have greater control over their condition, potentially improving their quality of life
  • Carry out patient assessment and make appropriate interventions and referrals where necessary
  • Manage more patients in the community, thereby reducing the burden of unnecessary hospital admissions and expenditure
