European Statements of Hospital Pharmacy

The European Statements of Hospital Pharmacy express commonly agreed objectives which every European health system should aim for in the delivery of hospital pharmacy services. They were formulated via a methodological consultation process with EAHP’s 34 member country associations and 34 patient and healthcare professional organisations and subject to final approval at the European Summit on Hospital Pharmacy (14 & 15 May 2014) that was attended by more than 100 persons. 

The statements were subject to open Delphi consultation with national hospital pharmacy associations, European patient groups, doctors and nursing organisations. The same organisations then gave their final joint approval to each statement individually by a weighted voting method at the Summit event.

EAHP and its national member associations now look forward to working with national health systems to bring about the full achievement of the European Statements of Hospital Pharmacy in every European country.
