The Pharmacy Service Level Alliance (PSLA) is supporting innovation in pharmacy services and enhancing the contribution of pharmacy to the patient's health care team. Established in 2010, the PSLA provides strategic direction, design, prioritisation and leadership for Community Pharmacies (with input from secondary/tertiary pharmacy services) across the Canterbury Health System.

Specifically, the PSLA is supporting and promoting the contribution of the Pharmacist in a patient’s multi-disciplinary primary health care team and initiatives that free up pharmacist's time for better patient focused care.

Currently the PSLA is leading the development of a local response to the national Pharmacy Action Plan. This involves progressing the ongoing transformational work in Canterbury, investigating and recommending how pharmacy in Canterbury can better contribute to the objectives of the Canterbury Health System and the New Zealand Health Strategy.

National Bowel Screening underway in Canterbury

03 Mar, 2021 | Return|

Over the next two years about 90,000 Canterbury people aged 60 to 74 will be eligible for a free test, as part of the National Bowel Screening Programme. It is anticipated that more than 100 cancers and 1000 pre-cancerous growths will be found in the first year alone.

On or near their birthday, they can expect to receive their testing pack in the mail. People with an even-dated birthday will receive theirs in 2021 and those with an odd-dated birthday will get theirs in 2022. All 74 year olds will receive a kit this year, to ensure no-one misses out in the two-year cycle.

More information on the National Bowel Screening Programme is available at www.timetoscreen.nz/bowel-screening
