To ask His Majesty's Government how many patients have been given structured medication reviews (SMRs) by pharmacists in general practice and primary care networks in each year since the launch of the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme in 2019; and what is the total number of patients that NHS England deems eligible to receive SMRs.

NHS England records the number of patients who have received a structured medication review (SMR) on NHS.UK in an online-only format. The total number of SMRs delivered in 2022/23 was 2,694,812; however, this data does not include who delivered the SMR.

NHS England does not hold data either on how many patients have been given structured medication reviews by pharmacists in general practice in each year since 2019, or on the number of patients eligible for an SMR.
