Health literacy can be defined as ‘the personal characteristics and social resources needed for individuals and communities to access, understand, appraise and use information and services to make decisions about health. A study carried out across Stoke and Staffordshire pharmacist shows that few have heard the term health literacy. We know that low health literacy has real effects on health, illness and medicine adherence. Community pharmacists have a key role to help patients with limited health literacy.
