- "NHS Community Trusts - how do they affect Acute Trust pharmacy managers?", Beth Taylors award-winning essay, the text of which could easily have "mental health" added throughout and used as the basis for a justification for a Trust-based pharmacy service
- How to start "putting together a business case for an in-house mental health NHS Trust pharmacy service", something put together by Stephen Bazire as an interim measure before the committee gets to see it
- A business case for a clinical pharmacy service from East Kent
- Another business case for a clinical pharmacy service from Essex
What the readers say.... "By the way thanks for the brilliant articles on the web site about specialist mental health trusts and development of pharmacy services. I am using them as a template to convince our newly formed trust that they will need and greatly benefit from a dedicated in-house independent service." (April 2000).
