The new services are arriving at Pugua's pharmacies, in addition to drug sales and some trials have already begun. The Regional Council has in fact approved a resolution formally launching a path aimed at guaranteeing access to state funds – 3m euros for Pu Pa – and laying the foundations for a timetable for experimental activities to be submitted for evaluation by the Ministry of Health. . The national guidelines identify three macro-areas of reference: cognitive services, pre-office and first-level analysis, telemedicine. The region's president, Michele Emiliano, made the remark in a note.
"The great and intensive work of close collaboration between the Region, Local Health Authorities and approximately 1,250 public and private sector pharmacies continues to deliver excellent results," Emiliano said. "The Pu Regiona region is actually among the top 9 Italian regions involved in the experiment. to identify new services provided by pharmacies within the National Health Service (Piedmont, Lazio and Puigas in 2018, Lombardy, Emilia Romagna and Sicily in 2019 and Veneto, Umbria and Campania in 2020), e obtain funds from the National Health Fund. " "We have always regarded pharmacies – he continues – as full-fledged multipurpose social-health facilities on the territorial assistance network, to guarantee the usability of basic levels of assistance, also in terms of widespread diffusion." "The resolution approved – it will continue – will also allow, thanks to the qualified support of provincial pharmacists' orders," "to further qualify the offer of new social and health services and to be closer to the needs of all clients."
