Review of the Distribution of Healthy Start Vitamins Through Community Pharmacies

Report on the uptake of healthy start vitamin tablets and drops across Scotland.

9. Conclusion

Although there has been an overall decline in the uptake of Healthy Start vitamin tablets and drops across Scotland in recent years, this is not due to the role of community pharmacies. Indeed, their role has increased during this period despite the overall decline in uptake. To increase uptake of Healthy Start vitamins other barriers need to be overcome. Including community pharmacies in addressing these barriers may be an important part of the solution.
